The Gentrification of the Mind
Sunday 14 Oct 2018 from 2pm to 4pm
Sarah Schulman in conversation with Elisabeth Lebovici
In this gripping memoir of the AIDS years (1981–1996), Sarah Schulman recalls how much of the rebellious queer culture, cheap rents, and a vibrant downtown arts movement vanished almost overnight to be replaced by gay conservative spokespeople and mainstream consumerism.
The Gentrification of the Mind is published in the Culture collection directed by artist Mathieu Abonnenc and dedicated to critical anthropology and art history.
In the same collection:
Art Queer by Renate Lorenz, published in January 2018;
My Cocaine Museum by Michael Taussig, published November 2018;
Shamanism, Colonialism and the Wild Man by Michael Taussig, forthcoming;
For an Aesthetic of Emancipation by Isabelle Alfonsi, forthcoming.
