My copy of Wilcock's Lo Stereoscopio dei Solitari signed by Slavoj Zizek.
Here's my copy of Juan Rodolfo Wilcock's collection of seventy portraits of solitary beings. It was signed by Slavoj Zizek during a convention of Hegelianists in Moscow at the Philosophy Institute. The conference was held barely 150 metres or so from the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. As the conference took place just after the jailing of the Pussy Riot trio all I could think about that day was the idea that the Hegelianists should march to the Cathedral and occupy it, led by Zizek himself. Alas, this did not come to pass. Curiously, the book that Zizek signed before mine was a copy of a Zizek book that the person was going to deliver to Nadezhda Tolokonnikova in jail.
