An evening focused on Right Wing (Media) Spaces
December 6, 2019 • 7:00 pm PST
The far-right is once again on the rise in the United States and Europe. How is this resurgence changing physical and digital locations? Philosopher and Thomas Mann Fellow Armen Avanessian will lead a multi-disciplinary conversation exploring the rise of right-wing ideology in the political landscape, and how it has reshaped our physical architecture and online spaces. Joining the discussion will be Jason Luger (UC Berkeley), Safiya Noble (UCLA) and Stephan Trüby (Institute for Principles of Modern Architecture, Stuttgart).
After his presentation, Armen Avanessian’s American guests will direct the conversation more locally: Noble will discuss right-wing space creation and infrastructure online, as well as the inherent prejudices, injustices and racism of algorithmic architecture. Luger will look at the American urban and regional fringe and the suburbanization of the right.
