the plan is to show episode one of adam curtis’ new series – watched over by machines of loving grace.
this assumes that someone will show up who can get the video to work off of a usb key. sigh.
we think that the following week will be the second episode, but we won’t show the third episode because it is not good 🙁 .
come early (7pm), bring good food (pref vegan, nut free, gluten free and delicious).
there are two readings:
1) The Origin of Science and Art from The Art of Tracking: The Origin of Science by Louis Liebenberg – available at http://www.mediafire.com/?0910m1l3seqdkzi
2 notes on this text: first, the first page of the printout is for chapter 3 which defines “simple tracking”, “systematic tracking”, and “speculative tracking” which are terms discussed in chapter 4 and second, “a.m. Homo Sapiens” means anatomically modern Homo Sapiens.
2) The Case Against Art by John Zerzan available at http://theanarchistlibrary.org/HTML/John_Zerzan__The_Case_Against_Art.html
we will be reading Coda: Every Work of Art Is an Uncommitted Crime. it is a chapter from Transgressions: The Offences of Art by Anthony Julius. the reading is available at http://www.mediafire.com/?h7sg5sxlomc9z12
