Dubai-based arts writer Kevin Jones has introduced a book club that takes place at Alserkal Avenue. The first book on the shelf is Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Zizek’s ‘Trouble in Paradise’. The book tackles issues of capitalism and how to escape its ideological constraints.

The book club is designed to take on books that may otherwise seem intimidating to solo readers. It is broken down into a series of meets where participants can engage in discussion and explore themes together. Spaces are limited, email rsvp@alserkalavenue.ae to sign up.
