Video: Hal Foster Live at the Kitchen

Virgil Taylor17 September 2015

On Wednesday September 16th, Hal Foster sat down with Tim Griffin, director and curator of the Kitchen, to read from and discuss his new book, Bad New Days

After a reading from the coda of his new book, Foster and Griffin had a wide ranging conversation. The evening concluded with a Q&A focused on what Foster means by "emergency", drawing out connections between the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s and Reaganist attacks on the social contract, and our contemporary post-9/11 world of emergency.

The discussion begins around the 4 minute mark.
