Conference: 20th International Symposium of Mexico City’s Institute of Critical Studies, Mexico City MX
January 13, 2016 - January 16, 2016
Improvisar En Tiempos Atroces (To Improvise in Atrocious Times) is the title of the 20th international symposium of Mexico City’s Institute of Critical Studies, January 13-16 at Biblioteca Vasconcelos (Buenavista). Covering topics of international violence, unrest, protest, and surveillance, the symposium will query, among other things, “how improvisation is not antithetical to the law but perhaps its fullest exercise … Might there be an ethic of improvisation? And an (infra)politics of improvisation?” The symposium features performances by Janice Misurell-Mitchell (USA) and Vyacheslav Ganelin (Russia / Lithuania / Israel). Thanks to Alain Derbez and Ana Ruiz for alerting us to this important international event!
