Heidegger's Mom and the Joke of Democracy: Fictional Notes on the Political

Opening lecture by Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei

05.10.2012, 19:30 — 23:30 Lecture

In a blend of fictional philosophy and philosophical fiction, Van Gerven Oei’s inaugural lecture considers the political situation in the Third Reich when all tragedy has been abolished. Martin Heidegger has become Chancellor and has stopped speaking. Nietzsche, his mother, silently screams… How do fiction and fascism merge, and what does Walter Benjamin have to do with all of this?
