Lecture: Avital Ronell


On April 7th, our fourth and last Spring 2009 Art in the First Person lecture, featuring writer and scholar Avital Ronell, took place.

Ronell spoke on the relations between art and morality, presenting the dossiers of Friedrich Nietzsche, the most ferocious defender of art as a vital necessity. Ronell is a professor at NYU and the European Graduate School in Switzerland, and frequently contributes to Artforum and ArtUS.
