AN INTRODUCTION TO RADICAL THINKERS at the ICA, January 21 – March 18


Since 1970 Verso has published the work of radical thinkers from Jacques Lacan and Jean-Paul Sartre to Fredric Jameson, Chantal Mouffe, Walter Benjamin, Louis Althusser, Judith Butler, and many more. The RADICAL THINKERS series of beautifully designed and affordable editions of classic works of theory now exceeds 80 published titles.

The new SET 8 features essential texts in philosophy and cultural theory, from the foundational work of Gillian Rose to Sheila Rowbotham’s seminal text WOMEN, RESISTANCE AND REVOLUTION.

To launch this new set, Verso is proud to present AN INTRODUCTION TO RADICAL THINKERS: a fortnightly series of events held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London. They are designed to take theory outside of the academy to create a public forum for the discussion of sophisticated ideas.

Led by engaging speakers to steer the potential of such debate far away from the safe confines of ‘philosophy- as-self-help’ to more provocative and radical horizons, the events aim to interrogate our existing understandings of all areas of life, including: sexuality, economics, faith, politics and the individual.
