Deleuze, Guattari and the Art of Multiplicity: A Symposium

In the turbulent contemporary world, the main question for art and art philosophy is how to mobilise art as an ethical and ecologically sustainable zone for fostering social change and dialogue. In response to this pressing issue, we are organising a symposium on ‘Deleuze, Guattari and the Art of Multiplicity’ that will take place in the Long Room Hub on 9 March 2018.

For the symposium, we have invited five renowned scholars:

The invited scholars foster an ethical understanding of art through their engagement with the philosophy of Deleuze and Guattari and in particular the Bergsonian notion of multiplicity.

The symposium is supported by the Research Incentive Scheme of the Long Room Hub in Trinity College, the Science Gallery, who will be promoting the symposium as part of their ‘FAKE’ exhibition, and also by the French embassy who will host a wine reception at the end of the symposium and include the event as part of the Month of La Francophonie in Ireland.

When: 9 March 2018

Where: Neill Lecture Theatre, Long Room Hub Institute for Arts and Humanities, Trinity College Dublin

Organisers: Dr. Radek Przedpełski ( and Prof. Steve Wilmer (, with the kind support of Research Incentive Scheme of the Long Room Hub in Trinity College, the Science Gallery and the French Embassy.
