In conjunction with the 2018-2019 Kaplan Institute for the Humanities Dialogue on the subject of “security,” Block Cinema welcomes acclaimed video artist Tony Cokes for a screening and discussion. Since the late 1980s, Cokes’s work has addressed questions of security by questioning state-imposed forms of visibility, with a particular emphasis on marginalized communities and media technologies in the post-9/11 “War on Terror.” Drawing on his groundbreaking Evil series (2004-ongoing), this screening explores the frictions between pop music and critical theory, political outrage and post-conceptual cool, oppressive regimes of visuality and the subversive subcultures of electronic music.

Co-presented with the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities
