On May 15th at the Cooper Union, Forgotten Spaces: A Film Screening and Conversation with Allan Sekula, Benjamin Buchloh, and David Harvey.
“Moving between the four port cities of Bilbao, Rotterdam, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong, The Forgotten Space excavates the maritime world as a space that is often foreclosed from mainstream awareness. This film reinscribes the sea as a crucial site within complex networks of global capitalism. Sekula and Burch intertwine this with narratives of the stories of people working in the world’s major harbors. The conversation following the film will explore the relationship between capitalism and uneven geographical development.”
