“Occupy Consciousness”: A Video Lecture on István Mészáros

"Occupy Consciousness": A Video Lecture on István Mészáros


Below are videos of a lecture on the work of István Mészáros, presented on March 10th, 2012 in the Community Room at the Harvest Co-operative in Cambridge, MA.

The presenters offered their reflections on István Mészáros’s latest work and related it to the current situation, contending that the American mind is stocked with the categories, symbols, and rules of the 1 percent and that it is absolutely necessary to start discarding and restocking with the relevant structures of the 99 percent.

Speakers: Doug Enaa Greene, a member of the Kasama Project and an activist at Occupy Boston; Irv Kurki, a coordinator for essential discussions of advanced theory; and Mario Rendon, American Institute of Psychoanalysis.
