David Harvey: Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism

Louis Moreno introduces David Harvey lecture at Central Saint Martins

David Harvey: Seventeen Contradictions and the End of Capitalism

UCL Geography/Urban Laboratory PhD researcher Louis Moreno was invited to give an introductory talk on Professor David Harvey's work prior to his lecture at Central Saint Martins, on June 25.

In this lecture Professor Harvey drew on his forthcoming book Seventeen Contradictions and The End of Capitalism, exploring the way capital works, how systemic contradictions are socially and spatially constructed, and asking whether these contradictions and inequalities generate new political and cultural pathways beyond capitalism.

Louis's talk considered some of the ways in which David's body of work provides a fresh starting point for a creative and practical response to a new era of civil unrest and geo-political uncertainty.
