On Rules and Monsters
Free Cooperation: Political Theory for Godzilla & Co.
Video Screening and Discussion (with Christoph Spehr in person!)
Introduction: Trebor Scholz
Why the hell does every monster want to go to Tokyo and stamp on it? Why
do we feel sorry if the monster gets shot at the end? Why does it always
return? These and other questions that are highly relevant to every
first grade or post-doc monster are dealt with in the video „On Rules
and Monsters – An Introduction to Free Cooperation‰. German political
theorist, cultural critic and video maker Christoph Spehr presents his
video, with Tony Conrad and Stephanie Rothenberg starring as speakers
and appearances by Godzilla, Gwangi, the Creature from the Black Lagoon
and many more, along with his new video „Hold On, Wilson – Of Islands
and Utopia‰.
Free Entrance, bring a photo ID to present to the lobby attendent
