Home – Part 2 – Slavoj Zizek

Lecture date: 1994-02-23

(Home and Radical Evil)

On Home as a domestic space and as the articulation of fundamental fantasies of space, memory and identity. The conference examines how the category Home works as a point of political reference and mobilisation, and considers the dangers of over investment in this category, both at the level of the city and in terms of fuelling political conflict.

Slavoj Zizek gives a talk on ‘Home and Radical Evil’ that examines modern evil through a multitude of variations on a single motive: home is evil. For Zizek Evil is not primarily a property of persons but evil has to be defined in topological terms. Evil is a certain place. Evil is home.
