How Dangerous is the Ir-rational?
18:30 Keynote by Michael Taussig
Michael Taussig’s work investigates commodity fetishism, the impact of colonialism, shamanism and folk healing, slavery, terror, mimesis, magic, and colour, to name only a few of his areas of interest. Since his first book, The Devil and Commodity Fetishism in Latin America in 1980, to his most recent publication What Colour is the Sacred? in 2008, the Columbia University Professor has combined fieldwork and theory in a unique genre of “ficto-criticism.” In this talk Michael Taussig will address the notion of fear in combination with the ir/rational.
