Label: Recital

Alain Badiou is a French philosopher, formerly chair of Philosophy at the Ecole normale supérieure (ENS) and founder of the faculty of Philosophy of the Université de Paris VIII with Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault and Jean-François Lyotard. Badiou has written about the concepts of being, truth, event and the subject in a way that, he claims, is neither postmodern nor simply a repetition of modernity. Badiou has been involved in a number of political organizations and regularly comments on political events. Badiou argues for resurrecting the idea of communism.

Here, we encounter his philosophical trimmings as unabashed art, articulated under the pseudonym Eric Schmid. Satire isn't mean, it's about being funny. Get in on the joke. Eric as Homer Simpson. Includes 88-page artist's book. Edition of 170.
