Revenge Fantasies of the Politically Dispossessed

Jacob Wren is a writer and renowned maker of eccentric performances. Tonight he has a assembled a group of people - Sheila Heti, Marcus Boon, Eric Chenaux, Jonathan Adjemian, and Amy C Lam - to play “relay interview” and to dissect the themes of  his new book, Revenge Fantasies of the Politically Dispossessed (Pedlar Press). Set in a dystopian near-future, it’s about people who regularly attend ‘the meetings’ to talk, and only talk, about how to re-ignite the left, for fear if they were to do more, if they were to actually engage in real acts of resistance or activism, they would be arrested, imprisoned, or worse.
Followed by a dance party with DJ Marcus Boon!
