Suhail Malik's point of view

The moral viability of globalization is partly consolidated by the mutual support of three distinct practical universalisms: (a) human rights, claiming a neutrality that gives them common validity; (b) contemporary art, constructing particularized indeterminacies of experience and interpretation; and (c) photography and its offshoots, materializing image-realities ubiquitously.

Their convergence constructs a “second humanism,” giving credence to globalization on the basis of indefinite, non-prescriptive claims—a formalism generating democracy as its recognized quasi-order.

Is there a politics adequate to this powerless-powerful affirmation of equivocation and contingency on a world-scale? What/who is its subject?

With Suhail Malik, Reader in Critical Studies at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Conference organized as part of The Human Snapshot Symposium (2011)
