18 december, 2012 - kl. 19:00 till 21:00
Welcome to FUF and Cinema Politicas pre-Christmas screening of the film “Marx Reloaded”.
Speaker for this event is Stefan de Vylder; economist, consultant in development and author. He has written, among others, the book “Eurokrisen”, Ordfront, Stockholm 2012.
Today a new generation of philosophers, artists and political activists are returning to Marx’s ideas in order to try to make sense of the crisis and to consider whether a world without or beyond capitalism is possible. Is the severity of the ongoing recession a sign that the capitalist system’s days are numbered? Ironically, 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, could it be that communism might provide the solution to the growing economic and environmental challenges facing the planet?
Written and directed by Jason Barker – himself an experienced writer, lecturer, translator and doctor of philosophy – MARX RELOADED comprises interviews with leading thinkers on Marxism, including those at the forefront of a popular revival in Marxist and communist ideas. The film also includes interviews with leading skeptics of this revival as well as light-hearted animation sequences which follow Marx’s adventures through the matrix of his own ideas.
Interviews with leading experts include: Norbert Bolz, Micha Brumlik, John Gray, Michael Hardt, Antonio Negri, Nina Power, Jacques Rancière, Peter Sloterdijk, Alberto Toscano, Slavoj Zizek.
