Honours Class | Leiden University


Paulo de Assis gives a Keynote Lecture for the Honours Class, Leiden University (NL) on Music and Politics.

Inspired by Gilles Deleuze’s Postscript on the Societies of Control, Nietzsche’s second Untimely Meditation, and Jacques Rancière’s Emancipated Spectator, Paulo de Assis unravels some of the dominant power relations affecting the performance of Western music, proposing alternative avenues for an emancipated performer—someone who, based upon the notion of ‘dissensus’, operates a redistribution of the sensible.

The lecture will take place 7.11.2017, 19.00, at the Lipsius Building, Cleveringaplaats 1, 2311 Leiden (NL).
