The 29th MoMA R&D Salon: Dependency, was great. It will soon be online, we will keep you posted.——-
Whether psychological, political, chemical, territorial, or biological, dependency is about power, control, and negotiation. Prompted by many dependency-based current emergencies—from the opioid crisis to the environmental havoc and the migration upheaval—we will discuss dependency and hierarchies between humans; between humans and substances, environments, and behaviors; as well as between communities and nations. 
I will host a conversation with (in alphabetical order) with disability and human development expert Lennard J. Davis; artist Park McArthur; anthropologist and activist Gina Athena Ulysse; and NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) Director Dr. Nora D. Volkow. 
The presentations will be accompanied by of a series of 1-minute videos by, among others, Yarimar Bonilla, Amanda Palmer, L.A. Kauffman, and Jeffrey Sachs. ——

“With Bugs, You’re Never Home Alone: a citizen-science project aims to catalog the spiders, insects and other many-legged creatures that live indoors with us.” A great story by Nicola Twilley in the New York Times reminds us that not only our apartment, but also this earth does not belong to us only.

The most recent MoMA R&D Salon, devoted to Angels––and not only of the winged kind—is now online. The link is in my bio. We have celebrated those who protect and guide us, mediate between individual and established  powers, zero in on each soul with surprising intimacy and focus, and do their best with generosity and abnegation. 
It was a great conversation with Mustafa Ali Faruki (from theLab-lab, a Brooklyn-based architecture practice), Annette Yoshiko Reed (Associate Professor in the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies and Program in Religious Studies at NYU), Jacolby Satterwhite (visual artist), and Calder Zwicky (Assistant Director, Teen and Community Partnerships, MoMA.) In the image, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Fall of the Rebel Angels, 1562.

Stills from The Mile-Long Opera by DS+R and David Lang, a wonderful experience, a choral, funny, deeply intimate but also grand tribute to NY acted by 1,000 performers on the High Line. So happy I saw it. #milelongopera #highline #highlinenyc #davidlang #dsr #feelsgoodtobehome

Dangerous Selfie: that’s me (my index fingerprint) in the picture, and that’s not the real title of Rafael Lozano Hemmer’s ‘Pulse Index’ (2010), which records every viewer‘s pulse and fingerprint, and renders it at different scales. But that’s the title I’d give it. #brokennature

Margiela rules! In the retrospective at the Galliera museum in Paris, each detail of each garment, each limb of each mannequin, each ensemble is a revelation of a creativity unlike any other. I am in awe. #margiela  #martinmargiela #antwerpfashion #genius #fashion
