September 10, 2023 | 17:30-20:00 | 2328 N Milwaukee, top floor / Logan square


Join CCAM and The Neu Lithium for a screening of Adam Curtis’s ALL WATCHED OVER BY MACHINES OF LOVING GRACE (2011), a gallivanting video essay about love, war, heroism, and computers, and the dream that we could run the world without politics.

Our panel samples the eclecticism of Chicago’s general intellect :

Seth Brodsky, musicology and psychoanalysis

Kristi McGuire, visual critical studies and its artistic and political outsides

Doug Rosman, critical and speculative computational media art

Followed by D.A.N. (Drone-Ambient-Noise)
