CSS Public Lecture: The Grand Hotel Abyss
“A considerable part of the leading German intelligentsia have taken up residence in the ‘Grand Hotel Abyss’, a beautiful hotel, equipped with every comfort, on the edge of an abyss, of nothingness, of absurdity. And the daily contemplation of the abyss between excellent meals or artistic entertainments, can only heighten the enjoyment of the subtle comforts offered.”
For our October 2018 event Canterbury Socialist Society executive member Hayley is sharing an an introductory public lecture on the Frankfurt School – a group of dissident Marxist intellectuals developing theory and critique in interwar Germany, and later the United States. No background knowledge required, all welcome, free to attend.
