At Museo Reina Sofía, Slavoj Žižek intervention sets out from the analysis of contemporary fascism, focusing on the issue of refuge today in NSK’s totalitarian fascination, at a time when fascist landmarks are re-emerging (the ideal of racial supremacy and extreme nationalism) and appear to be on the cusp of shaping a new ideological landscape of post-Brexit Europe and the refugee crisis — where the motives and dangers of this fascist temptation are found. Against the atmosphere of neo-liberal jubilation in 1989, Žižek will analyse how the failings of this system have made the potent return of one of the twentieth century’s biggest nightmares possible.
