Session 2 : Identity Ploy and Dangerous Fictions — A workshop hosted by the journal Vacarme

[Paris • France]
No one knows for sure what « identity » means, but all minorities most definitely need to fictionalize identities for themselves. To fictionalize is both to let the cat out of the bag and to hide, to resist the dominant order and accept its game, but to play it differently. Nevertheless when the identity trick becomes a national project and a desire of the State, it is continually at risk of falling into violent or sad re-territorializations. In response to the invitation by the “Secession Sessions”, Vacarme offers to hold a fictitious editorial board meeting with the audience in order to reflect upon the possible articulations between its specific issues of interests: fictions, politics of emancipation, the relation to the State and the rise of European fascisms.
