Jesse Darling + Juliet Jacques @ Carroll / Fletcher, Nov 11

10 November 2015

Author Juliet Jacques and artist Jesse Darling discuss digital spaces and trans* identities at a sold-out event at Carroll / Fletcher on November 11.

The event is part of a special season-long series collaboration titled Networked Culture, Digital Politics between Carroll / Fletcher and Verso Books which examines the relationship between culture and digital technology.

Jacques, author of Trans: A Memoir published by Verso this year, joins artist and writer Darling to discuss feminist thought, queer theory, non-binary and trans-identities and “their articulation in online spaces”, as well as the general artistic practices and explore both body and technology.

Alex Williams + Nick Srnicek @ Foyles, Nov 3

3 November 2015

Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek are launching their new book, Inventing the Future: Postcapitalism and a World Without Work, at Foyles London, on November 3.

Published by Verso, Srnicek and Williams’ text draws on the context of the recent rise in populist left parties across Europe (from Jeremy Corbyn to Podemos) to present a manifesto for a world after capitalism.

In conversation with Emma Dowling, the duo contend that concrete alternatives to capitalism must be born out of a high-tech, sophisticated economy, which can deliver advanced living standards and freedom from work.
