Next meeting, we will be screening Assemblages (2010-), a long-term audiovisual research project on Félix Guattari by Angela Melitopoulos and Maurizo Lazzarato. We'll discuss animism through a couple of e-flux journal texts published in conjunction with the 2012 exhibition on the subject curated by Anselm Franke. See more information below.
The discussion will start at 7:00 PM prior to the screening at 8:30 PM. Please join us for either or both. Hope to see you there. We can order some pizzas.
