Age of (In)Security -Homi Bhabha & Saskia Sassen

“Living Side by Side: On Culture and Security: Does the concept of security assume a distinctive cultural form in the midst of deafening patriotic calls for protection and precaution?
This lecture explores the role of culture and the arts in cultivating an ethic and aesthetic of “living side by side” that contributes to our contemporary understanding of “cosmopolitan right” (Kant). Homi Bhabha will reflect on the global scale of cosmopolitan affiliations to ask what kinds of neighbourliness are possible in a time of partial sovereignties and paradoxical communities that constitute our Age of (In)Security.”
