Final Readings of The Semester

Posted: November 28, 2020 in Readings

You guys, these are the final readings for this strange remote semester. There’s so much more I wanted to show to you. For better or worse, I drastically slowed our pace so as not to lose those persons who chose to keep up. I have so much admiration for everyone who put in a genuine effort.

Beatriz Colomina is one of the most intelligent and engaging persons with whom I have ever spoken. Her writing can be challenging, but she’s not deliberately obscure. These are materials that I hope will resonate with you. Colomina’s thoughts on a world composed of screens certainly resonate with me, especially at this moment. All these pieces draw from both the thoughts of both Benjamin and Nochlin, so please keep those authors in mind as you read.

Try to enjoy these, and best wishes to you all!
