Book Launch | Joyful Cruelty
Weds: 6-8 pm
Swiss Institute and Free Association invite you to celebrate the release of Joyful Cruelty by Clément Rosset
Out of print for nearly 20 years, this is the first and only work by Rosset to be translated into English. The theory of Clement Rosset is at once cruel because it destroys all illusion and joyful because it allows one to see the world in its simplest and purest terms. This book lays the foundation for a new philosophy that refuses to turn away from the world and thereby accepts a confrontation with reality in all of its immediacy.
Joyful Cruelty is presented in conjunction with the OOGA BOOGA Reading Room.
