Join us for the final Design and Violence debate!

Design and Violence is an ongoing online curatorial experiment that explores the manifestations of violence in contemporary society by pairing critical thinkers with examples of challenging design work. For this debate series, spanning four evenings, the curators have chosen four provocative motions supported by case studies that will be argued for faults and merits.

Debate III: April 17, 6:30—8 pm, Bartos Theater

The fourth debate will center upon Temple Grandin’s “serpentine ramp,” a slaughterhouse design modification that attempts stress reduction and a more humane death for animals. Professor Gary L. Francione (Distinguished Professor of Law, Rutgers and author, Eat Like You Care: An Examination of the Morality of Eating Animals) and Nicola Twilley (Edible Geography, co-founder of the Foodprint Project, and director of Studio-X NYC) will deliver debate motions, moderated by Paola Antonelli.

In Giovanni Anselmo’s Untitled (Structure that Eats) from 1968, a head of lettuce is pinned between two blocks of granite and held together by a copper wire. As the lettuce wilts, one of the blocks begins to fall. The sculpture is on view through April 21 as part of Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the New.
