Description

A revelatory conversation between two major figures in visual culture. This exhilarating dialogue between two of the most interesting thinkers working in philosophy and architecture today covers fundamental problems of politics, identity, and aesthetics as their exchange becomes an imaginative exploration of the possibilities of modern architecture and the future of modern life. Among the topics the speakers take up are Frank Gehry's surprising Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the limitations on innovative ideas, and a pre-9/11 assessment of the importance of the World Trade Center.
