Benjamin, video, party
Good afternoon from Portbou.
I’ve spent the past few days following Walter Benjamin’s path through the Pyrenees from Banyuls-sur-Mer to Portbou. I shared some of the path here.
And here is a photo of Dani Karavan’s memorial for Benjamin in Portbou.
If you missed the conversation between Madeleine Thien, Paul Holdengräber and me at the Pulitzer Museum you can watch it here:
It was an intimate discussion about quarantine, isolation, and making art during the pandemic. I hope you enjoy it!
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research is 10 years old!!!
If you are in the New York City area please come out and celebrate with us on June 4th at the Littlefield Performance + Art Space!
Festivities begin at 7pm.
And on that note:
There’s a couple spots left in my two summer courses!
I hope you have a wonderful week.
