If you missed it, read Fanzine’s conversation between Krejcarek and Matthew Ronay. And here’s an essay I did on one of Bransford’s shows a while back. -CM

And then Don’t Miss This tomorrow, Sun, May 8th:


A JUNGLE OF SIGNS – lecture and discussion
Sunday May 9
4:30pm: Jesse Bransford and Karsten Krejcarek
5:30pm: a lecture by Michael Taussig

A talk by Professor Michael Taussig (Dept. of Anthropology, Columbia University) who is one of the most innovative, distinguished and socially engaged voices in cultural anthropology. An interdisciplinary thinker and engaging writer, Taussig’s work combines aspects of ethnography, story-telling, and social theory. An area of long standing interest, Taussig will be discussing aspects of Latin American ayahuasca-based shamanism and its historical interface with Western magic.

In 2007, visual artists Jesse Bransford and Karsten Krejcarek spent time in the city of Iquitos, Peru and the surrounding jungle. In a public conversation they hope to further elaborate on the experiences in relation to their art and art making in general. Topics will include globalization, adventure narratives, monkeys and telepathy.
