Event description
Join Michael Löwy, Marianela D’Aprile, and Aline Klein for a multi-media discussion of Löwy’s new book, Revolutions.

About this event

Michael Löwy’s Revolutions presents a startling visual documentation of a wide range of seminal revolutionary events, from the Paris Commune of 1872 through to the Zapatista uprising of the mid-1990s. The immediacy and dynamism of the book’s images tells the story of these upheavals in a way that texts rarely can, offering a rare glimpse of these complex and messy events and the real human beings who drove them.

This celebration of the book’s release will showcase dozens of these stirring photos as the participants discuss what the images tell us about their moments, and how today’s socialist movement can draw lessons from the revolutionary struggles of the past.
