There is a Crack in Everything: That’s How the Light Gets in

Humanities Forum
Wednesday, March 4 | 7:00 p.m.
Michael Rakowitz, Professor, Art Theory & Practice, Northwestern University
Performing Arts and Humanities Building, Room 132

Artist Michael Rakowitz discusses his work in the context of hope and antagonism, and at the intersection of problem solving and trouble-making. Rakowitz’s interventions in urban spaces extend from paraSITE (1998 – ongoing), in which the artist builds inflatable shelters for homeless people that attach to the exterior vents of a building’s HVAC system, to Minaret (2001 – ongoing), in which access is gained to rooftops in Western cities and the Islamic call to prayer is sounded.
