Omnicide II: An Evening of Riddles, Poetry and a New Game

Miguel Abreu Gallery, New York

Sequence Press and Urbanomic are pleased to host Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh and Reza Negarestani at Miguel Abreu Gallery for a conversation and book launch of Mohaghegh’s recently released Omnicide II: Mania, Doom, and the Future-in-Deception.

The author will be joined by fellow philosopher Reza Negarestani for a sequence of spirited reflections on those apocalyptic poetries of the Middle East found throughout the book—calling up the voices of Adonis, Joyce Mansour, Forugh Farrokhzad, Ibrahim al-Koni, Mahmoud Darwish, and Ahmad Shamlu.

Here, language starts to resemble a deck of cards; consciousness turns with the throw of dice; the mind becomes a blank domino. Through these rare challenges of thought, Mohaghegh and Negarestani will articulate an endgame that belongs to those strange plays of imagination (mirage) that surface only at the hour of pure vanishing.

Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
