Ideal Museums & Maverick as Method
Tuesday, October 25th @ 1:30- 3:00 pm
As part of KCDC's All Corners Internet Conversation Series this talk will compare and contrast wide-ranging museum design research with the real life settings of Elsewhere Living Museum and will approach the questions: What does your museum of the future look like? What would be its manifesto? How would it work? At the end of the conversation, the audience will be invited to pose questions to the presenters and to submit their own ideas for a zine that will be created from this conversation.

Pablo Frankenburg is a scholar of museum studies pursuing his doctorate at the University of Tuebingen, Germany. Frankenberg has been conducting research in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, asking museum consultants: What Makes the Ideal Museum?

Stephanie Sherman is co-director and Chris Kennedy is education curator at Elsewhere Living Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Elsewhere is a three store building housing one woman's 58 year collection of thrift and surplus, which has become a living installation curated by hundreds of contributors over a 9 year period. Today, Elsewhere is a space to investigate creative collaboration, through community events, a residency program, and educational initiatives.

This Google+ conversation is hosted by the University of California, San Diego Art Department.

Limbic Resonance.
Thursday October 27th, 5:30-7:00 pm

This KCDC class will be an exploration of the notion of 'limbic resonance', the scientific term for the unspoken communication that occurs between mammals in physical contact with one another.

Taking form as an internet chat with artist Fiona Hallinan speaking from Ireland, the class itself challenges the possibilities of non-present communication. Can we replicate the experience of presence virtually? Using methods of anecdote, meditation and video trickery, the class will play with notions of embodiment and physicality, ultimately questioning whether true connection can be created through technology.
This Google+ conversation is hosted at Agitprop in San Diego, California.
