The Brooklyn Rail—with the participation of McKenzie Wark, Thyrza Nichols Goodeve, David Levi Strauss, and DJ Spooky—will hold a tribute this weekend to the late Paul Virilio.
“The failure of the visual arts leaves open the possibility of the ‘optical correction’ of the world. By whom? By machines and businessmen, who happen to know how to work together quite well.” — Virilio, The Accident of Art, 2005
A special film by Sylvère Lotringer will be screened at the event.
A TRIBUTE TO THE WORK OF PAUL VIRILIO
Saturday, October 27, from 7 pm to 9 pm.
Brooklyn Rail, 253 36th Street, #C304, Brooklyn.
See The Genetic Bomb by Virilio and Lotringer.
