Michael Taussig is an Australian-American anthropologist renowned for his provocative and shape-shifting ‘ficto-critical’ writings and life-long engagement with the work of Walter Benjamin. A writer, performance maker and imaginative mover through the unseen of complex worlds, he has written extensively about the violence of colonisation, of the state and of late capitalism in Latin America – especially in Colombia where he has lived and researched since the 1960s. His books over the past decade have threaded and unravelled knotted historical and philosophical histories of colour, magic, drawing and lives lived on the hell edges of late liberalism. Most recently he has turned his attention to the ruins of palm oil monocultures. Mick was in Alice Springs a decade ago and delivered the unforgettable WTS talk, I Swear I Saw This.
