The final lecture in the 38th Bampton Lectures in America series, is rooted in 1974 and beyond. Liam Gillick looks at the mise-en-scène as a model for social and cultural organization. Continued shifts in technology and the rise of Neo-Liberalism are countered by the rise of new identifications and subjectivities.

1820 Erasmus and Upheaval
Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 7 pm
Contemporary art is the product of a complex set of social, economic and psychological markers. This series of lectures presents a particular genealogy of the modern period in order to contribute a revised understanding of the origins of contemporary art and its analysis.
Starting in 1820, prior to the European revolutionary upheavals of 1848, the first lecture will address the immediate aftermath of the French and American revolutions and the stresses which led to new models of work, life and social organization.
1948 B. F. Skinner and Counter Revolution
Thursday, February 28, 2013, 7 pm
1948 is the starting point for the second lecture. Examining conspiracy, behavioralism, post-war restructuring and the delusions around applied modernism it will reveal the various counter measures, both intentional and structural, that shaped the post-war sense of self.
1963 Herman Kahn and Projection
Tuesday, March 5, 2013, 7 pm
For the third lecture 1963 is the pivot for a consideration of projection – both social and political. The rise of insurgency and the consolidation of the scenario as a tool of political and financial control is combined with new models of the presented self within developing sub-cultures.
Co-sponsored with Columbia University School of the Arts, Visual Arts Program.
