This event features the U.S. Premiere of The Forgotten Space (2010), an award-winning film by Allan Sekula and Noël Burch. This screening will be followed by a conversation between Allan Sekula and geographer David Harvey, introduced by Anthony Vidler, Dean and Professor of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union, New York.
Moving between the four port cities of Bilbao, Rotterdam, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong, The Forgotten Space excavates the maritime world as a space that is often foreclosed from mainstream awareness. This film reinscribes the sea as a crucial site within complex networks of global capitalism. Sekula and Burch intertwine this with narratives of the stories of people working in the world’s major harbors. The conversation following the film will explore the relationship between capitalism and uneven geographical development.
This program is free of charge and open to the public; seats will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors open at 3:30 PM.
