foulcart and chomsky on tv
Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault (1971)
FORMAT is 'live magazine' looking at the shapes that discourse takes. This summer at the AA, Issue 2 will talk about talking, show what it means to show something, and present the hidden politics of presentation. Mixing anecdote and analysis, seminars with screenings and singing, FORMAT's themed, reflexive sessions look back on how knowledge has been formatted into disciplines, institutions, technologies — as well as how the present moment questions or surpasses received formats of cultural consumption. Paraphrasing Marshall McLuhan, 'The format is the massage.'

- Organised by Shumon Basar
