Paper on Reactor and ‘Big Lizard’s Big Idea’ to be presented at Chelsea Theatre symposium
By Jonathan Waring on November 5, 2010
A paper on Reactor and ‘Big Lizard’s Big Idea’ will be presented at Chelsea Theatre’s ‘A Make Believe World’ symposium as part of the Sacred Festival. Daniel Oliver will discuss Reactor’s practice of ‘relational insincerity’, drawing on both Slavoj Žižek and David McNeill to compare the performative force of our behaviour as participants with our behaviour towards the ‘big Other’ of liberal capitalism.

Response to ‘Slavoj Žižek and the Recycling Superstition’
By Jonathan Waring on August 12, 2010
In this response to my previous post (Slavoj Žižek and the Recycling Superstition) I address the ‘the Rs of sustainability’; continue my examination of Žižek’s notion of superstition and his invocation of the ‘paradox of the performative’; and link to a backlight.vpro.nl video in which Žižek is interrogated by giant video screens.
