A Manifesto for the Freedom of Attention
November 14, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm ESTFree
Join us for the first in the ATTENTION SERIES program of Second Saturday events:
A special program of performances, conversations, events and workshops centering on ATTENTION, presented by associates of the “Friends of Attention” collective. From the politics of algorithms to the aesthetics of dreams, from the attention economy to tracking shots of early cinema, this series focuses on the perils and pleasures of the directed senses and the tuned mind.
For the launch session, Artist Stevie Knauss presents an online version of her pre-COVID Cloud City performance — “a love letter to a sound mind.” Directly addressing the alienation, atomization, and disillusionment we experience at the disintegration of shared reality, Knauss speaks in a flash-bang of clarity, and sings a burning desire to live in a better world, a desire to desire on our own terms with clear-eyed imagination.
Hosted by D. Graham Burnett.
A ZOOM code will be provided to all RSVP guests 30 min prior to the start of the program, at 5:30pm on Saturday November 14th, 2020.
