Experimental Geographies

"There is tenderness only in the coarsest demand: that no-one shall go hungry any more" – Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia (1974: 156)

Round-up: October 28, 2010

1. Nina Power’s Infinite Thought Blog has posted details of an upcoming talk by Martha Nussbaum in London entitled: “Not for Profit: Why Democracy needs the Humanities.” How appropriate and timely! Details also available on the British Academy website.

2. Stuart Elden at Progressive Geographies has posted details of another excellent David Harvey video. Definitely worth taking a look.

3. The British Art Show opened last Friday in Nottingham to great fanfare. Sideshow also opened successfully. Sideshow has been set up to support the British Art Show and as a showcase for Nottingham’s thriving local scene. 15 new art commissions have been selected involving over 100 artists from across the UK. Events and exhibitions run through to the middle of December.
