Co-presented by CalArts at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

Renowned French philosopher Catherine Malabou headlines a day of free discussions exploring the crossover of biology, technology, and the arts organized by the CalArts MA Aesthetics and Politics Program and held at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Malabou’s evening lecture draws on her current research into biology and biopolitics, as well as her highly praised writing about the concept of plasticity at the crossroads of continental philosophy and neuroscience. A famed professor at the Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense, Malabou has written such influential books as Plasticity at the Dusk of Writing, The Future of Hegel, and Counterpath (with Jacques Derrida).
