Co-presented by BAM and the Onassis Cultural Center New York
With Sarah Jaffe and Sanjay G. Reddy
In conversation with Simon Critchley
In conjunction with Greek

In Greek, the story of Oedipus—both a search for one’s truth and an attempt to prove one’s free will against the forces of destiny—is transposed to Thatcher-era Britain and the economic fatalism felt by many at the time. Philosopher Simon Critchley speaks with journalist Sarah Jaffe and economist Sanjay G. Reddy about the relationship between economic circumstances and the expression and reception of the truth of one’s lived experience.
