It is often said that we no longer have an addressee for our political demands. But that’s not true. We have each other.

What we can no longer get from the state, the party, the union, the boss, we ask for from one another. And we provide.

Since 2009, need and care and desire and admiration – and indeed, love – have been cross-examined, called as witness, put on parole, and made the subject of caring inquiry by e-flux journal authors.

Join us on Thursday, September 14 at 7pm to celebrate these inquiries with the New York launch of What’s Love (or Care, Intimacy, Warmth, Affection) Got to Do with It, the eleventh title in the e-flux journal reader series with Sternberg Press—featuring contributions by Paul ChanKeti ChukhrovClusterAntke EngelHu FangBrian Kuan WoodLee MackinnonChus MartínezTavi MeraudFred Moten and Stefano HarneyElizabeth A. Povinelli and Kim Turcot DiFrusciaPaul B. PreciadoMartha RoslerVirginia SolomonJalal TouficJan Verwoert, and Slavoj Žižek.

Following a response to the book by David Kim, contributing author Tavi Meraud will present the performance Cor Chor Core, which takes as its starting point Julia Kristeva’s suggestion that “… a narrative is, all in all, the most elaborate attempt, next to syntactic competence, to situate a speaking being between his desires and their prohibitions …”

David Kim is a graduate of Yale Law School and a principal at the  management consultancy Incandescent. He is also the founder of JUNCTURE, an initiative in art and human rights. Kim collaborates with various artists and curators on projects in connection to contract, intellectual property, human rights, ethics, and finance.

Tavi Meraud is an artist in Brooklyn. She just completed her MFA at Bard College.
