I'll be in dialogue with Jean-Michel Rabaté and Charles Bernstein on November 4 at the Slought Foundation in Philadelphia to discuss Venice's urban fabric and its anachronistic relationship to modernity. Slought 4017 Walnut St Philadelphia, PA 19104

Tuesday, November 4, 2014, 6:30-8:30pm

We will be addressing questions such as: What can the reputedly obsolete structures, cultures and values rejected by modernism and modernity offer to contemporary life? What forms do radical anachronism, skepticism toward rationality, residual sentimentality, and waste take in twentieth and twenty-first-century art? This event has been made possible through the generous support of the Department of English at the University of Pennsylvania.

Full details, various taster-texts, AND audio of our full discussion are archived at the fantastic Slought Foundation website.
