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
