Theoretical: Re-Imagining the City as a Revolutionary Utopia.
Theoretical: “Re-Imagining the City as Revolutionary Utopia” With Tom
McDonough and Alexander Galloway.
Theoretical is a new critical discourse series at ISSUE Project Room
curated in collaboration with Brandon W. Joseph (Columbia University),
David Grubbs (Brooklyn College), and Seth Kim-Cohen (Yale University).
Through monthly talks, panels, and classes, this series seeks to
actively engage artists, writers, and audiences in examining and
discussing key issues in contemporary aesthetic theory, media, urban
space and politics.
On February 1st, we invite you to join ISSUE Project Room for
Theoretical: Re-Imagining the City as Revolutionary Utopia, a discussion
between Tom McDonough and Alexander Galloway about Situationist Urbanism.
The Situationist International (SI), led by Guy Debord and central to
the Paris uprising in May 1968, published many incendiary texts on
politics and art in the journal Internationale Situationniste. One
central theme to their work was rethinking the city: from a site for
routine consumption and work to a utopia that breaks down barriers
between function and play.
Book Launch event for The Situationists and the City: A Reader, edited
and translated by Tom McDonough (Verso Books)
Free and open to the public
