The Future Station talk by Metal Liverpool is back at Edge Hill station, 6pm on Tuesday 27 February, featuring writer Matt Colquhoun who will discuss how self-love can be reread as self-transformation.
In this talk, Matt will draw from their latest book Narcissus in Bloom: An Alternative History of the Selfie (Repeater Books, 2023) and the work of Arthur Russell to discuss their reflections on whether narcissism is positive and necessary and its relationship to queerness.
Matt Colquhoun is a writer and photographer from Hull, UK. Alongside their most recent work, Narcissus in Bloom: An Alternative History of the Selfie (2023), they are the author of Egress: On Mourning, Melancholy and Mark Fisher (2020) and the editor of Mark Fisher’s Postcapitalist Desire lectures (2021). Check out their blog: xenogothic.com.
This talk is in partnership with experimental fiction publisher and shop Dead Ink Books and radical writing publisher Repeater Books.
There will be a short Q+A with Matt after the talk. Free (vegan) food will be served after the talk where there will be a chance to discuss ideas further. As places are limited, we are asking for a deposit of £5 which will be refunded when you attend. Walk-ups are welcome, subject to availability.
