Submitted for your approval — The Aesthetic Dimension: Videos From The Left Side.
NLN’s sister site, Love & Struggle, is a repository of music and art videos. In recent months L&S has produced a series of videos that present some key concepts advanced by the foremost thinkers in the tradition known as psychoanalytic sociology. The “playlist” that houses the videos is called The Aesthetic Dimension. It currently includes the following videos:
- “Carousel” — A music video based on The Mass Psychology of Fascism by Wilhelm Reich:
“One-Dimensional Man” — an interpretation of Herbert Marcuse’s classic text:
“The Politics Of Experience” — a video based on R.D. Laing’s masterwork:
One viewer commented on The Politics Of Experience: “Well that shook me up. Good.”
Future projects include videos based on the works of Stanley Milgram, Hannah Arendt and Herbert Marcuse (Eros and Civilization will be offered as a companion piece to One-Dimensional Man).
