About The Event
This provocative illustrated lecture from philosopher Patricia MacCormack launches her new book, The Ahuman Manifesto. For this presentation she focusses on the occult argument of the work, namely that in this catastrophic era, occultism offers a place of respite and transgression, and nowhere does so better than chaos magick, especially chaosium cunnis (cunt chaos). It not only offers solace, but it has the power bring into being a queer chaos world. Get ready for squid vulvae, tentacled torment and eco-mucous.... and ultimately - hope and grace. The lecture run from 7.30 to 8.30, and drinks follow til 9.50, with book signing. Doors 7 pm.

Patricia MacCormack is Professor of Continental Philosophy in English and Media at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. She has published extensively on Deleuze, Guattari, Blanchot, Serres, Irigaray, queer theory, tratology, body modificatin, posthuman theory, animal rights and horror films. In 2013 she was a visiting Leverhulme Fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

About the book. The Ahuman Manifesto explores five key contemporary themes: Identity, spirituality, art, death and the apocalypse, along the way addressing specifically modern phenomena like death cults, intersectional identity politics and capitalist enslavement of human and nonhuman organisms. MacCormack looks towards a way forward which combines activism, artistic practice and affirmative ethics to urge us to compose the human differently, beyond nihilism and post- and trans-humanism and, crucially, outside human privilege. The book looks to a new world in which we think actively and live viscerally, with connectivity, passion and grace.
