Who better to spend Friday night with than two Communists and a room full of smart asses?

Our loud-mouthed mentor Slavoj Zizek and his best bud Alain Badiou were at Jack Tilton Gallery for an intimate event. It was organized to celebrate the 36th issue of Lacanian Ink, as far as I could tell. Editor Josefina Ayerza gave an introduction, of which I didn't understand a single word  (except for "pussy"). Alain Badiou spoke like a serious man, and Zizek claimed that Kant wasn't a total idiot. Full audio of each talk below:
