What is ideology? And what is the critique of ideology? Does ideology always come before our talking? Does it necessarily determine our thoughts? Does it determine who we love and with whom we fight? Is it only in our heads, or does it also have to do with our feelings, with our bodies, with our desires, and the psychoactive substances we consume? Starting from some 1960s philosophical discourses the course will try to understand what the so-called “aesthetic turn” of post-marxist ideology critique is all about, and talking about sex and drugs and rock’n’roll, we will articulate aesthetic and artistic practices with concepts such as “micropolitics” and “microphysics of power” in order to understand the forms and forces that govern our everyday lives.
