MAD THEORY: A Performance Philosophy Symposium

MAD THEORY: A Performance Philosophy Symposium
Saturday, April 12th, 9:30am – 6:30pm
Madison Public Library Central Branch, Room 301

From an audio/noise performance theorizing queer stammers and the glitch to a relational, food-based aesthetic gesture; from a trans-digital methodology of the handmade to a performative investigation of race in visual culture; from experimental theory videos to collaborative digital poetics; from philosophy of body modification to exploration of library literacy programs, MAD THEORY features a stunning range of interdisciplinary work!
