“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Tim's Holiday Lectures Gift 16: Avant What? (video)

This is me and Cary Wolfe in dialogue at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, on the occasion of the Avant Museology conference (e-flux). Lively and at one point intense--always getting the no vibes from the Hegelians...Also, there's a fun animation I made.

What you can't hear is all the laughing in the audience!
