Researcher, CNRS; director, Programme d'Expérimentation en Arts Politiques (SPEAP), Sciences Po.
In this talk, Frédérique Aït-Touati will discuss some of the ways in which the Programme d'Expérimentation en Arts Politiques (SPEAP) or Experimental Program in Political Arts, at Sciences Po, founded by Bruno Latour, explores the creative relationship between, and compositional practices of, art (photography, theater, etc.) and theory in the Age of the Anthropocene. Aït-Touati, who now directs SPEAP, will explore how the program brings together architects, designers, academics, members of the civil service, researchers, administrators, activists, and curators within an experimental framework, to develop new ways of thinking—and of feeling and experiencing—this new age in which man had become a geological force.
Event hosted by Judith Miller, NYU and Phillip John Usher, NYU
