This online book launch is co-hosted by Human Resources Los Angeles and New York's Participant Inc., New York, and is celebrating Alexandro Segade's new graphic novel The Context (Primary Information). Reinterpreting the superhero comic book as a "strange parable of belonging", which combines Segade's lifelong love for the comic universe with his education and practice in advanced semiotics and lived experiences that lead to new social ideas. The six characters in the story – Biopower, Cathexis, Barelife, Objector, Drives and Form – each embody a concept from critical theory and possess powers that are as existential and philosophical as they are cosmic. Sunday, August 2nd, 4pm; free; Participantinc.org.
