The Royal Academy of Arts has announced that Jacques Rancière, one of the most influential philosophers of our time, will be joining Royal Academician Farshid Moussavi on October 8, 2018 to discuss aesthetics and architecture, and their connection with space and politics.

This event is part of a series of conversations between philosophers and architects which examine the relationship between architecture, politics, the environment and gender.
