KREIDER + O’LEARY

Hyperspace, Sensorium, Connectivity, War...A Lecture with interruptions 

This lecture takes as its starting point the Westin Bonaventure Hotel designed by architect John Portman in 1974. Nested in the heart of Los Angeles, this ‘city within a city’ was infamously interpreted by pre-eminent Marxist theorist Frederic Jameson as a model of postmodern hyperspace and an allegory for the logic of late capital.  The building became the site for a Kreider + O'Leary performance entitled 'LA Tapped'.

The lecture will cover the following topics:

The Bonaventure Hotel / LA Tapped / Moon Landing / Falling / Bas Jan Ader / Pruitt Igoe / 104 Kilotonne Idea / Whitie on the Moon / WTC / Starship Enterprise / Donna Summer / Bunker Archeology / Dedalus-Icarus / Star Wars / Michael Herr’s Dispatches / Kyoto Station / John Portman / O Superman (For Massenet) / Strategic Defense Initiative / The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism / Ronald Reagan / Wings of Desire / Video Shakkei / The Angel of History / Fight the Power / Terror Paranoia / Satanic Verses / Cell / Falling Man / Basinski’s Disintegration Loops / Iraq War I + II / Parhessia / Sontag’s Regarding the Pain of Others / Arnold Schwarzenegger / Shock & Awe / Butler’s Frames of War etc…
