Last Summer Stoop

The Summer of Stoop…

When: Thursday, August 21, 6-9PM

Where: Tyler Campus, Penrose Rooms 304 and 306

Bring Food, Drink, and Art!

As a continuation of the last Stoop conversation, we invite individuals to bring examples of their work, for a conversation about the artist and academia’s position in and responsibility to, the larger culture(literature, film, politics…)

The texts linked provide a historical example of a very particular extreme of such a relation between art and life as well as some contemporary reactions to that relation.

Some readings to guide the evening:


Three artist manifestos from the beginning of the Soviet experiment

Bogdanov, Tatlin, FwOC

Peter Scheldjahl Village Voice review of Rodchenko at MoMA


review from World Socialist Web of the same exhibition

For those unfamiliar with his work, a nice page of Rodchenko’s photography


A view from the other side of the rabbit hole:

NY Times obituary of Russian Novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn


Contact Mark Shetabi or Philip Glahn

See you soon!
