This Saturday, artist/educator/author Curt Cloninger will give a brief lecture on the banks of the French Broad River in Asheville, NC about psychogeography, the Situationist practice of dérive, and Henri Bergson's understanding of time, memory, and the mind. After Cloninger instructs participants in the finer points of subjectively drifting through time in order to reclaim it, participants will drift downriver in floating tubes. The last person to reach the destination (a bar) will be crowned the winner.
Without further ado, here is a roundup of this week's events and deadlines, culled as always from Rhizome Announce.
