Writer and filmmaker Chris Kraus joins Sylvère Lotringer and Becket Flannery for a discussion on the 90s ‘Chance Event’ on the occasion of Semiotext(e)’s publication of Jean Baudrillard’s lecture for Chance at LA’s Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT) on December 8.
Before Kraus’ I Love Dick (a confessional epistolary novel detailing her relationship with Lotringer and her obsession with a man named ‘Dick’), she organized a “three-day philosophy rave in the Nevada desert called Chance Event that became known as “the Burning Man of French theory”.
Kraus joins her former partner and Semiotext(e) general editor Lotringer and artist Flannery (who is currently writing a book on the Chance Event) for a timely discussion on Baudrillard’s lecture for Chance and as part of the Hotel Theory exhibition running October 3 to December 20.
