Pillow Talk with Sophy Naess

Pillow Talk with Sophy Naess
With a screening of The Discrete Charm of the Bourgeoisie by Luis Buñuel

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

266 Decatur Street, Brooklyn, NY

Sophy Naess, a 2013 Shandaken resident, will read selections from her zine Dinner at the Prince's Zoo, a fragmentary meditation on love in the time of capitalism. Naess will touch on contemporary understandings of affective labor and historical labor movements, with detours through the ideas of thinkers such as Silvia Federici, Marx, and Jacques Rancière, as she describes her experience as an artist in our current historical moment.

The reading will be followed by a screening of Luis Buñuel's The Discrete Charm of the Bourgeoisie. Please BYO pillow (to sit on); we'll make some soup and cider.

Shandaken Projects' ongoing series of "pillow talks" are intimate discussions with former residents and special guests. Eschewing the traditional slide lecture format, these presentations focus on residents' realms of inquiry rather than illustrated histories of their object-making.
