Educational Complex, published by Afterall Books in 2015, examines Kelley’s striking body of work and the Detroit-born artist’s tongue-in-cheek mining of American pop culture —what the event’s press release calls his “relentless examinations of subjectivity and of society that are both sinister and ecstatic”.
Miller is joined by German author, music journalist and cultural critic Diedrich Diederichsen as well as writer John Beeson for a discussion on Kelley’s work as it relates to “post-punk politics, religious systems, social class, and repressed memory”.
