"You In Danger, Girl" : Friendship as a Revolutionary Act in a Transactional Age

  • Pratt Institute 200 Willoughby Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11205 United States (map)

(As part of the Global South Center's conference on 'Social Ecologies')

We live in a time where even our passing curiosities are monetized. Yet, there remains the persistent need for coalitions, cliques, groups, chapters, subscribers, districts, cabals, covens, boards, teams, task forces, think tanks, gangs, and trustees.  Identity-making by committee.  

I wonder, did we always know ourselves only in relationship to other people? And, if so, is this an inherent vulnerability of human connection?  Has friendship become a lifestyle marketing tool? What is a friend,  when a curated portrayal, via social media, is preeminent?

Chile... I. Do. Not. Know. But I can speculate.  Join me for an in-the-round-discussion, moderated by a voice modulator and featuring The Cashmere Bouquet.
