McNation: State Branding in and Beyond Russia

Seminar by Ellen Rutten | May 19, 2020, 3-6 pm | Venue: Spui25 | Open to: PhD Candidates and RMa Students | Credits: 1EC | With a team of internationally renowned expert scholars, writers, and artists, we explore nation branding and popular geopolitics by zooming in on Putin-era Russia – a place and time that allow us to study neo-nationalism as a vivid joint interest (and, in some cases, object of mockery) of both official institutions and rappers, poets, designers, and other ‘other’ voices.

To Describe a Life

Lecture by Darby English | January 13, 2020, 18.00 for lecture and Q&A (through February 2020 for display) | Oude Lutherse Kerk, Singel 411 | In the final chapter of his new book “To Describe a Life: Notes at the Intersection of Art and Race Terror” (2019), the maverick art historian Darby English sets out “to describe rather than contain” a very curious object: “Lorraine Motel, April 4 1968”. This is a model of the site of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, produced by the design firm Boym Partners in 1998 as part of the Buildings of Disaster series.
