Henri Lefebvre’s three volume magnum opus Critique of Everyday Life makes the radical case for analysing moments of everyday life, from work to leisure to family life, to see how they are colonised by capitalism and how, as a result, people become alienated from each other. It’s been lauded as a major influence on the students and workers who participated in the May Events, both in Paris and across the world, and is now being reissued by Verso to mark the 40th anniversary of ’68. Andrew Hussey, author of Paris: The Secret History and The Game of War: The Life and Death of Guy Debord, and film-maker Patrick Keiller, who wrote and directed the films London and Robinson in Space, will discuss the work and its legacy.
