abstract

On November 9th, Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States of America. Alain Badiou, who was in the US during that time, responded to the election in a talk at the University of California, Los Angeles, co-sponsored by the program in Experimental Critical Theory and the Center for European and Russian Studies. The following text is a translation of the transcript of his response, originally written in English and published at the website Mariborchan and the publishing house Verso. Badiou reflects not only on the specific event of the election, but on the situation of the world today.
