Hey New York, I’m participating in this panel discussion next weekend, which promises to be interesting. Come out and participate, if you’re in town!
Re-Inscribing the City: Unitary Urbanism and it’s Legacy
April 9th , 4:15-5:45pm
WHERE: Judson Memorial Church (balcony)
55 Washington Square South, NYC
A panel for the 5th Annual Anarchist Book Fair.
From the late 1950s until about the early 1970s, a group of poets, artists, architects, students and troublemakers known as the Lettrrist/Situationist International (LI/SI) made a desperate attempt to re-inscribe the European city so that its inhabitants could break free from the bleak urban routine of work and consumption. Today some artists are still attempting to break from urban alienation, while operating on the periphery of the establishment, (a.k.a the city’s cultural gate-keepers.) This panel critically examines these past strategies and contemporary work within the LI/SI vein.
Participating panelists: Ethan Spigland, Adeola Enigbokan, Dillon De Give/Blake Morris & The Walk Study Group, and Wilfried Hou Je Bek
