Reading Group: NOTHINGS INTO SOMETHINGS

NOTHINGS INTO SOMETHINGS is a series of public events that I have organised with my peers from Postcapitalist Desire, the module created and taught by Mark Fisher at Goldsmiths College from November 2016 until his tragic passing in January 2017. Since then, we have decided to continue the course in the form of student-led seminars with Mark’s friends, colleagues and those inspired by his work joining the conversation.

Besides these seminars, our research culminates in the NOTHINGS INTO SOMETHINGS series. It takes the form of reading groups and workshops, whose aim is to collectively speculate about what could be the desire for Postcapitalism and how to make it work. This happens through the discussion of a list of key terms: Desire, Debt/Subjectivity, Future/Time, Terminology/Consciousness, and Work/Post-work.
