On Friday May 20th, Het Nieuwe Instituut invites you to the presentation of Posthuman Feminism (Polity Press, 2022), the new book by philosopher Rosi Braidotti. It is presented in interaction with live music, that runs as a score through her book by means of reflection, comments and annotation.
About the book:“Posthuman Feminism is an analytic and creative response to contemporary conditions and a call to action. It highlights the constraints but also the potentialities available to feminist political subjects as they confront the ever-growing injustices of sexism, racism, ecocide and neoliberal capitalism.”
The booklaunch also marks the public launch of The New Academy, a collaboration between Het Nieuwe Instituut and Rosi Braidotti. The New Academy focuses on the transition of Rotterdam towards a green and inclusive city that takes the cognitive capital of its human and non-human citizens (such as plants, animals, technology) as a catalyst.
We are delighted to invite you to this festive launch in the institute’s Auditorium. Afterwards, Rosi Braidotti is signing copies of her new book at NAi Booksellers and there are drinks & bites at Het Nieuwe Café.
