Talk

What is ‘affect’? How can it become political? In what ways are digital communications and social networks changing the impact of emotions on societies and their control mechanisms? In a new series called “Politics of Emotions / Power of Affect”, the cx centrum for interdisciplinary studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich will focus on affects and emotions in connection with power structures, and, as a significant category of contemporary social analysis. At the closing event in cooperation with the Münchner Kammerspiele, the sociologist Eva Illouz and director Milo Rau will discuss “Rage and Power(lessness)”.
