A conversation with Jennifer Scappettone and others on the urban fabric of Venice and its anachronistic relationship to modernity
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Slought is pleased to present "Venice by Electric Moonlight," a conversation about the urban fabric of Venice and its anachronistic relationship to modernity, on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 from 6:30-8:30pm. The event will feature conversants Jennifer Scappettone, Charles Bernstein, and Jean-Michel Rabaté discussing 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.
