The Palimpsest Project 1.3

The Palimpsest Projectre[public] in/decency (Toronto/Chicago)

A performance/lecture in defense of (re)appearance.

“Speed is perceived in two ways…as a causing factor of changes of culture and civilization and as an issue of (de)urbanization, which prepare the ground for new spatial objects and spaces.” -Paul Virilio, Speed and Politics

The historical palimpsest is a manuscript on parchment which has been effaced to make room for later writing, but of which antecedent traces remain.

Re[public] in/decency invites you to experience The Palimpsest Project 1.3, a time-based performance/lecture with Coman Poon (Toronto) and Erica Mott (Chicago) that examines how reified boundaries and palimpsested landscapes affect our embodied sense of self and place.
