Enemies Of Good Art

This discussion will be structured around the argument of contemporary
feminist philosopher Luce Irigaray, that matricide is one of the dominant fantasies
underlying western culture. How do fantasies of matricide impact on our
discourses, narratives and social organisations? What are the meanings and
effects of this matricidal culture on lived experience and social realities? Can
interventions on the level of representation contribute to the dismantling of the
current ‘matricidal’ socio-symbolic world? Chaired by Amber Jacobs.
