These evening events are intended to be just that: events. The logic of the event couldn’t be further from the logic of research ‘outputs’. Forget knowledge exchange, here re-search is ‘forced’ into a void (indicated prior to the event) that it must find a way of naming.
“What the event calls forth and names is the central void of the situation for which this event is the event…since the event is to disappear, being a kind of flashing supplement that happens to the situation, so what is retained of it in the situation…must be something like a trace, or a name that refers back to the vanished event” (Alain Badiou, Ethics)
This is what we do. So far so good—keep coming!!
