5 March, 2019 - 18:00

Is love a political affect? Hannah Arendt was the author of essays on totalitarianism, the banality of evil and refugees. In her PhD thesis and in other writings she considered love as an apolitical or antipolitical passion but also as an amor mundi that embodies the best of politics. Is love political, apolitical or antipolitical?
