Tomorrow Nite, Nov 11: "Everything is Dangerous" - A Case for the Pamphlet as Criticism

This post was made to the blog for handmade book creation, art, and activism

In regards to tracing the history of the book and activism, this talk tomorrow night at Art in General might contain points from which to follow. Although Kristina Lee Podesva's starting point on the pamphlet + art criticism is the 19th Century, it might be possible to trace it back the 18th Century, which of no coincidence was also the birth of the Neo-Classic period and the Parisian Salon, a pivotal point in Europe that attempted to democratize the production, exhibition, and criticism of art.

Being & Event: Session 2

This post was made to the blog for ALAIN BADIOU's BEING AND EVENT

Hello all,

I think Saturday went really well! We agreed to convene once again on Saturday, December 4th @ 2pm.

Please read Parts I and II by then.


Also, please consider offering a presentation to the group in order to frame further discussion. Suggested topics

for parts I & II could include:

Badiou & Plato

Badiou & Aristotle

"The Void"

Badiou & Spinoza


And so on. Of course, more discussion on set theory, axioms and mathematics are DEFINITELY welcome. If no one steps

forward I'll will have something prepared.


For more reading on that, a Badiou book group leader @ Middlesex recommended to me these titles:

"The Philosophy of Set Theory" by Mary Tiles

"The Infinite" by A.W. Moore (chapters devoted to Cantor)

another translation of "our" poem

This post was made to the blog for handmade book creation, art, and activism

from a Basque newspaper, provided by Jack Collom:

Eragozpena aundiya dezu
ta da aundienetakua.
Auxe, bai, dala gaurko egunian
estali gabe zulua

Olaku leku biar biarrezkuan
izenbat on ona egin leiken,
antxen bilduta zuri ta beltzak!
Ez da gauz erraza neurtzen.


Charles Bernstein

From the Basque

Ears are poppin' everybody's dancin'
to the Andalusiana.
Ax, bat, delirious bobbing especially
establishes gulled surfeit.

O like a leaky bear's Bar Mitzvah
intent on owning, egging, lurking
Anxious bickering surely taps ballistic!
As the gauze errata neutralizes.







Good Read to Accompany

The Hour, by Bernard DeVoto, is a manifesto to restore the sanctity of the cocktail hour, and would make a great read to accompany the course:

465 Grand Street in Manhattan? I ask because most of the other PS classes are in Brooklyn.
