An Old New Map at 16 Beaver

An Old New Map: A Discussion
7pm Friday 29 August 2008
16 Beaver - 16 Beaver Street New York, NY

16 Beaver hosts a talk this Friday by the Armenian composer, scholar, and activist Karen Hakobyan at their downtown space at 7pm. Karen will be discussing recent events in Georgia, South Ossetia, Abhazia and Russia, what the venue's press release describes as sites of conflicts and frozen conflicts used to reconstitute Cold War era geopolitical fault lines. Rather good timing then, for 16 Beaver to host the event, after some of the Western media furor over what has been showcased across popular and news media for most of the month of August as Russian aggression - but in reality remains something entirely else - quiets down (or sobers up).
