Thursday, October 24, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Coco Fusco

Coco Fusco

New York-based interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco will consider the critical responses to the original Planet of the Apes films, focusing in particular on the interpretation of the films as critiques of American race relations during the 1960’s and ’70’s.

She will also discuss her interest in exploring the strategies used in early sci-fi cinema, the ways that films such as Planet of the Apes employed speculative fiction to generate social critique.

Moderated by Professor of Writing Junot Díaz and Associate Professor Ian Condry.
