ResoVision Debut at Frieze Art Fair
On Sunday October 17 at 1.00 pm I shall be making my debut appearance on ResoVision, Resonance FM’s new television platform, which is making its first test transmissions from this year’s Frieze Art Fair in Regent’s Park. I am giving a talk entitled ‘The Whole World Is Watching’, which examines different contemporary perspectives on the electronic delirium of the 1960s, specifically those found in the writings of Marshall McLuhan and Herbert Marcuse. By connecting the two, I am hoping to contrast Herbert Marcuse the media theorist with Marshall McLuhan the radical philosopher. Or something.
I also hope to be joining Richard Thomas and his guests for a moment of ResoVision reflection at around 6.00 pm by way of a conclusion to the day’s events. Nothing is rehearsed; everything occupies its own time – even the mistakes. Resonance FM can be found at booth P12, so please come along if you happen to be in the vicinity – otherwise you can follow events by clicking here. Full schedule details of all ResoVision broadcasts can be found by clicking here.
