This Tuesday, April 17th at 7:00 p.m., the Visual & Critical Studies Department will present “Yes, You Don’t Know Me—Susan Hefuna in Conversation with Bettina Mathes.” Here is a description from SVA’s list of events in the Spring 2012 Art in the First Person lecture series:
If truth is never naked and facts are always dressing up, what does it mean to be an expert? If to find ourselves we must get lost, what do the patterns, grids and notations we invent to navigate our inner and outer worlds look like? If space is a corporeal map, where do we draw the lines? Author and cultural critic Bettina Mathes will talk with German-Egyptian artist Susan Hefuna about disguise and dis/orientation as formal strategies and about Hefuna’s collaboration with choreographer Luca Veggetti for the dance performance “point-move-line” at The Drawing Center.

“Yes, You Don’t Know Me” will take place Monday, April 2nd at 7:00 p.m at the SVA Theatre at 333 West 23rd Street, and is free and open to the public.
