Postmasters Gallery is pleased to continue
the Sunday Lecture Series #1:
Lectures for the End of the World by Fuck Theory
This Sunday - January 8 @ 4pm with Sarah Nicole Prickett
54 Franklin Street, NYC 10013
Take a deep breath. Learn to think differently.
This Sunday, Postmasters Gallery will continue the Sunday Lecture Series #1 of new lectures by pseudonymous philosopher Fuck Theory. A timely set of meditations for an anxious time, Fuck Theory's "Lectures for the End of the World" aim to alleviate anxiety and replace the negating contradictions of contemporary 'theory' with an immanent, life-affirming ethics.
Sunday Lecture Series #1 Schedule: Sunday Lecture Series #2 to begin in March
The present is rife with anxiety and uncertainty. Everywhere the sense of foreboding and impossibility presses down on efforts to organize, to inform, and to think. What would a thinking look like that was driven not by insular, endless debates and arcane mechanisms of selection but by a genuine desire to remove anxiety, to affirm life, and to resist getting lost in a web of contradictions?
Having started on December 18th, 2016 Postmasters Gallery will continue to host the Sunday Lecture Series #1 written by the pseudonymous philosopher FuckTheory and read by friends who will serve as live stand-ins. The lectures will think through some of the persistent problems of recent intellectual history, and ask seriously what the present situation implies for the habits and institutions in and through which we are used to thinking and creating. The organizing thread of the lectures will be the insistence that the ways we think about and talk about the world are inseparable from the ways we live in it and the conditions under which we do so; that the dominant and hegemonic intellectual institutions push the epistemologies and ideologies they push for a reason; and that to think differently and to live differently are inseparable, parallel propositions.
In hosting the lectures, Postmasters hopes not only to give voice to alternative ways of framing knowledge and critique but also to create a space where anyone interested in thinking seriously through the anxiety of the present can engage without the insular divisions that are often present in familiar spaces of intellectual engagement. The gallery will remain open after each lecture for conversation.
It is cool.
You should come.
FuckTheory isn’t a real person, but they still seem to have a lot of opinions. You can read their work on Twitter, on Tumblr, and in various publications.
