From Fetish to Propaganda

Ahmad Fuad Rahmat, University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus

From Fetish to Propaganda

Sharaad is back! This week, we turn to Marx and Freud to take a critical look at the politics of fetishes. From the bedroom to the boardroom, we review how our ideological and illusory attachments to objects and their purported metaphysical value reveal the quirky sides of human vanity and confidence in progress. (Also, Fuad apologises for using the term "bodily organs" when he just needed to say "body parts").
