“We count ourselves among the rebels who court storms, who hold that the only truth lies in perpetual search.” – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova “I cannot tell you how proud I am to be in contact with you – You show all of us the way to combine these right insights with simple courage.” – Slavoj Zizek In an extraordinary exchange of letters, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, imprisoned for taking part in Pussy Riot’s anti-Putin performance, and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek discuss artistic subversion, political activism, and the future of democracy via the ideas of Hegel, Deleuze, Nietzsche, and even Laurie Anderson. Two radicals, one in a Russian forced labor camp, the other writing to her from far outside its walls, show passionately – across linguistic and generational divides – that “there is still a common cause worth fighting for.” Touching, erudite, and worldly, their correspondence unfolds with poetic urgency.
