  3. John Warwicker - Forming art / design collective Tomato and working with Underworld

    John Warwicker’s work as a graphic designer appears across a variety of mediums, from music videos to print, typography and video art - even including occasional template designs for websites like the one you’re currently browsing.

    John talks about the importance of drawing to his creative practice, a highly tactile form of creative expression that is also seen as pivotal by Mark Bickerstaff and Chris Bangle.

  4. Slavoj Žižek - What the Liberal Left Doesn’t Want to Hear (Nov. 2016).

    This lecture was especially chosen to be scheduled the day after the election. The original title of this lecture is ‘Racial Enjoyments: What the Liberal Left Doesn’t Want to Hear’ - but Žižek quickly announces to omit ‘racial enjoyments’ in light of the election outcome.

    Transcript - We who try to be decent people are bombarded by some kind of moral political pressure from two sides: First there is the worst one, of course, this anti-immigrant populous side like why should we even allow refugees in; it’s their fault; third world travel and so on, there are enough poor people here; they come from another civilization; it means conflict and so on and so on. So there is all the time this pressure of we are defending our way of life; refugees are disturbing it.
