Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Kirk Varnedoe, The Politics of Postmodernism (1993)



Inclusion or confusion? Curator and visionary Kirk Varnedoe lays out the landscape in this historic talk from May 19, 1993 at the Museum of Modern Art in his dissection and unraveling of the undertones of Postmodernism. Tough, unapologetic, astounding.

You'll want to take a peek at the Pruit-Igoe St. Louis housing project failure that is a sub-theme of the talk. And get ready to Google writer Tom Wolfe, artist Ed Ruscha, architect Robert Venturi. Keep your pencils sharpened.
