After his sold out appearance in Royal Festival Hall in 2010, Slavoj Žižek returns to Southbank Centre to discuss 'The Year of Dreaming Dangerously', his analysis of the riots and revolutions that swept the world last year.
As part of our series on Modernism, Žižek discusses how these events augur a new political reality - fragments of a utopian future lying dormant in the present.
He considers the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street within the rapidly shifting world order before taking questions from the audience.
