[ space ] is bringing the Schizo-Culture: Cracks in the Street exhibition and event series to its London studio from October 2 to December 14.
The project takes the 1975 “Schizo-Culture: On Prisons and Madness” conference at Columbia University as its point of departure, using the seminal event – which turned the Semiotext(e) journal into the “Semiotext(e)” entity it is today – to re-engage with some of the cultural links and disconnects the 1975 conference brought to light.
During its run, Schizo-Culture: Cracks in the Street will feature a “speculative schizo-cultural archive” as well as commissions and performances by artists like Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson of Terminal Beach, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, and Susan Stenger. Also part of the show will be screenings and public discussions, recordings and ephemera from the original conference, and special contributions from William Burroughs, Plastique Fantastique, Vivienne Dick, and Semiotext(e) founder Sylvère Lotringer.
