About The Event
Tonight's lecture by two pracitioner-thinkers is a exploration and experiment in chaos magic. Phil Hine and Patricia MacCormack unpack queerness and 'queer(ing) as: a commitment to difference and diversity; complexity over simple assertions; open-endedness over prescriptive solutions; lived experience over abstractions. Chaos magic, in the sense they mean it, is a refusal to be trapped in boxes or borders; a joyful, unruly wilfulness. Permission to be uncertain rather than expert; to embrace indeterminancy. Join us for their call to the queerying of chaos, towards a magic that embraces daemonic atavism, art, philosophy and literature. Followed bu Q&A and drinks party after.
