In the face of the new world situation, ideological circle has also responded. Such as Marxism, since the drastic changes in the Soviet Union, has been once at a low ebb. While with the outbreak of financial crisis, it proved Marx’s insight again. “The return of Marx” has become a new trend of thought. Another example is Carl Schmitt. After the US election, some people compare him with Trump. And Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault and Deleuze are still providing us the energy of thinking and the power of criticizing. Moreover, contemporary radical thinkers, such as Rancière, Agamben, Badiou and Zizek, have never let go of the opportunity to express dissents, which themselves constitute an action.
Therefore, we have particularly invited seven scholars/artists. They will analyze their selected classics in the one-hour reading session. Through seven hours of continuous reading, with a sense of ritual and symbolic practice and action, we intend to start a storm of thought.
