Simon Critchley: The Heights of Ecstasy
8-10pm Friday 31 October 2008
Cabinet - 300 Nevins St, Broolyn NY
Tonight at Cabinet's new event and exhibition space in Brooklyn, philosopher Simon Critchley will deliver a performance lecture, or sermon, while situated in a very tall wooden chair. Ever faithful to the Cabinet aesthetic, the lecture's topic will quite naturally be elevation: on thinking, ecstasy, and self-deification. The event is co-presented by the Slought Foundation, a Philladelphia based not-for-profit that produces, publishes, exhibits, and distributes work by artists, architects, and intellectuals. Slought is tonight celebrating the release of their new DVD series, which will feature discs on the work of tonight's guest as well as others including Werner Herzog, Dennis Oppenheim, Alain Badiou, and Vito Acconci. The event is free and no RSVP is necessary.
