Barker & Toscano Debate Marx Reloaded in Lodz


This weekend Marx Reloaded director Jason Barker joined Alberto Toscano, one of the film's protagonists, and the philosopher Graham Harman at a conference devoted to Speculative Realism and Marx Reloaded. The three day conference was held at the Sztuki Muzeum in Lodz, Poland, and attracted an enthusiastic and highly informed audience.
  
This was an event worthy of an "Alien vs. Predator" mashup. In addition to a stimulating lecture by Graham Harman on the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft and two brilliant talks by Toscano (one on Badiou, Meillassoux and Speculative Realism, and the other on French Marxist philosophy of the 1970s) the conference was rounded off by a screening of Marx Reloaded, then discussion between Barker and Toscano on the idea of communism.

Thanks to Pawel Polit and to the staff at the Sztuki Muzeum for putting this event together. 

Reminder:

As mentioned previously, we plan to have the official universities and schools edition of the DVD ready for release by the end of this month. Please contact us for order details.
