Self-identified “Failed Intellectual” Eric Jarosinski, the man behind the popular Twitter handle @NeinQuarterly, the Internet’s leading compendium of utopian negation, will be giving a talk in the Croatian capital on Friday…
Jarosinski is a former professor of modern German literature, culture, and critical theory. He recently left academia to devote himself to his post as founding editor of Nein.Quarterly, where in the form of aphorisms he writes about culture, philosophy, art, politics, despair, love and other specters haunting our lives.
On Twitter @NeinQuarterly has gained a highly diverse global audience, currently numbering over 100,000 readers in more than 125 countries. Nein.Quarterly also appears in Die Zeit in Germany and the NRC Handelsblad in the Netherlands.
Jarosinski and his work have been featured in numerous international publications, including The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, The Believer, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Der Spiegel, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Wall Street Journal, Slate, and The Irish Times.
His first book, Nein. A Manifesto., will be published this fall in the US, Canada, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Finland, the UK and Australia.
The talk with Eric Jarosinski in MaMa (Preradoviceva 18 at 7.00pm) will be moderated by Vatroslav Miloš. (Mi2.hr)
