The Roundabout Revolution
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The event is for: students - anyone
Lecture by Eyal Weizman, professor at Goldsmiths, University of London. Language: English
The lecture will be about The Roundabout Rrevolution. Remember the arabic revolution, how in Cairo the people occupied a square? Well was it a square? It was more a kind of roundabout, physically meshy in itself. Perhaps nothing more than a void, but with a great name: Tahrir, meaning liberation, and a place full of potential. What we call multitude can occupy and start the revolution from without a fixed centre and there have been other roundabouts full of revolutions.
