Lecture and Performance | Notes: on Value – You are all so tired
Thurs | 7pm
“You are all so tired for you have failed to concentrate your thoughts on a simple but ambitious plan.”
Elaborating a tension between the amnesiac hand of the gambler and the experimental hand of the performer, Notes: on Value editors Kylie Gilchrist and Megan Stockton present You are all so tired. The event will feature a lecture by philosopher Cooper Francis on Walter Benjamin’s figure of the gambler and a sound performance by artist Matthew Doyle.
Please forward widely, a time-based publication of poems printed on The Saint Petersburg Paradox press releases, will be distributed at Swiss Institute from July 30–Aug 3, concurrent with the event.
