The Rupture

Jun 16, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm

Variety Show

Presented with General Assembly

What is disruption, anyway? The term has been cast as a tech market tactic, a cultural trope, and a belief system of near-theological proportions. In an evening of performances and provocations, we’ll consider many definitions of this watchword. Presenters will offer perspectives of radical change ranging from activism and technology to equity and design.

Participants: It’s Showtime subway dancers; Kimberly Drew, @museummammy and associate online community producer, The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Riley Hooker, editor, Façadomy; Jonathan Lee, design manager/lead, Google Design; Oscar Nuñez, program coordinator, Center for Urban Pedagogy; members of Picture the Homeless; Steven Thrasher, U.S. writer-at-large, The Guardian; and critic, editor, and curator Mimi Zeiger
