SEASTEADING, AND OTHER FLOATING AUTONOMIES

Office Hours with Tom Looser


Utopic, imaginary, and desperately real, new zones for world-making are with us. This is a chance to consider, playfully, the kinds of creativities (however dangerous) that are now popping up, on land and on sea, in cities and in art—including the real material conditions that are helping this to happen. Stop by for office hours!
