The John McDonald Moore Memorial Lecture
Monday, November 17, Wollman Hall
Lecture: 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

The fourth John McDonald Moore Memorial Lecture will be delivered by philosopher Boris Groys who will speak on design and branding, and how nature and God have been replaced by design and conspiracy theories.

A Professor of Aesthetics, Art History, and Media Theory at the Center for Art and Media Technology (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, Germany, and Global Professor at New York University, Groys is a philosopher, essayist, art critic, curator, media theorist, and an internationally acclaimed expert on late-Soviet postmodern art and literature as well as on the Russian avant-garde. Groys’ writing engages the wildly disparate traditions of French post-structuralism and modern Russian philosophy.
