Synopsis

'Brad Evans in one of the brightest critical minds of his generation' - Henry A. Giroux







Whether physical or metaphorical, institutional or interpersonal, violence is everywhere. A seemingly immutable fact of life, it is nonetheless rarely engaged with at the conceptual level. What does violence actually mean? And is it an inevitable part of the human condition?







Conversations on Violence brings together many of the world's leading critical scholars, artists, writers and cultural producers to provide a kaleidoscopic exploration of the concept of violence. Through in-depth interviews with thirty figures including Marina Abramovic, Russell Brand and Simon Critchley, Brad Evans and Adrian Parr interrogate violence in all its manifestations, including its role in politics, art, gender discrimination and decolonisation.







Provocative, eye-opening and bracingly original, Conversations on Violence sheds light on a defining political and ethical concern of our age.

Brad Evans is a political philosopher, critical theorist, and writer specialising in the problem of violence. He is Professor of Political Violence & Aesthetics at the University of Bath and the lead editor for the Histories of Violence section with the Los Angeles Review of Books. Adrian Parr is an internationally recognised environmental, political and cultural thinker and activist. She is Dean of the College of Design at the University of Oregon, and she serves as a UNESCO Chair on Water and Human Settlements.
