Test the West: T.J. Clark + Kaja Silverman in Conversation
The evening will begin with a talk by Clark about consumerism and its image-world. Specifically, he will explore the implications of an image he once took in Berlin, Germany of a billboard advertising a brand of cigarette under the slogan "Test The West." His talk will be followed by further conversation with Kaja Silverman about art and capitalism after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the relation of visual depiction to what he has referred to elsewhere as the "sales-pitch-world."
