23 June 2015

Well, it’s sold out but if you follow the FB event page linked at the end of this post, you can see coverage of the This New Feeling: What is Metamodernism? discussion at Central Saint Martins on June 26.

The talk brings together Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker, the two authors of the academic arts and culture webzine Notes on Metamodernism and founders of Metamodernism.com, to discuss bygone days of Postmodernism and the “contextualisation of the New State of Feeling, or Metamodernism”.

Vermeulen (also a director of the Centre for New Aesthetics and professor of cultural studies and theory) and van den Akker (a cultural philospher) will be joined by Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner (individual sites are here and here) of the collective LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner , to discuss their practice within the field of Metamodernism, joined by the actor Shia LaBeouf via Skype for the Q&A.
