The City Seminar on Infrastructure


Beginning in February 2015 freethought ran a regular City Seminar in Bergen focusing on expanding the notion of infrastructure towards the management of subjectivity and of human labour. The seminar met at the Public Library of Bergen or at the Literaturehaus for a day of reading and discussion. This form of public collective study formed a curriculum around our shared concerns and introduced a curatorial model achieved through collective public study, research and discussion. In the evening of the seminar day freethought invites… hosted a dinner for the city and a guest lecture aimed at opening up the seminar discussions to wider audiences. Among the distinguished guests hosted have been Territorial Agency, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Tom McCarthy, Laurence Rassel and others.
