  1. Zizek on Parallax and architecture - RN By Design - 6 January 2010

    Slavoj Zizek, professor in the Institute for Sociology at Ljubljana in Slovenia, is one of the more unusual philosophers of our day: an old-fashioned Marxist, student of psychoanalysis and star of a movie called The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema.

    He was in Melbourne for Parallax, the 2009 national architecture conference, and joined us to talk about how the gaps between different viewpoints have inspired architectural practice, his admiration for Stalinist ‘wedding cake’ buildings, why large public art venues are not as anti-elitist as they pretend to be and (of course) his admiration for Governor William Bligh.

  2. Slavoj Zizek - Late Night Live - 26 September 2011

    Slavoj Zizek has been described as more a phenomenon than a philosopher. He packs auditoriums and lecture halls wherever he speaks and is one of Europe’s foremost Marxist theorists. He’s said to have an opinion on every subject from decaffeinated coffee to sex, from seagulls and swearing to the end of the world.

  9. Slavoj Zizek –€“ Screening Thought: The Media’€™s Philosophical Problem | Backdoor Broadcasting Company

    Event date: 4th May 2011 Institute of Contemporary Arts The Mall, London.

    Continental philospher Slavoj Žižek and Paul A. Taylor (author of Žižek and The Media) explore the difficulty of conveying philosophical ideas within today’s media.

    Increasingly, intelligence is only tolerated in pre-approved and reassuringly non-challenging forms – deprecatory humour (Stephen Fry), decaffeinated reasoning (Alain de Botton), or suspiciously grand narratives (Simon Schama). Žižek himself is constantly pigeonholed by such media clichés as ‘the Elvis of cultural theory’ and ‘the Marx Brother’. This event sets out to question ‘what can be done?’ by serious thought in a culture of sound bites. Is the best that media philosophers can hope for to ‘Try again, fail again, fail better’?
