Armory Arts Week – PSYCHLOTRON*

March 7 | 6-11pm


Whitebox Art Center and curator Lara Pan are introducing a multi disciplinary performance platform, PSYCHLOTRON* conceived by artist John Bonafede. Based in NYC, Psychlotron* is an interdisciplinary art and performance event, the name comes from the term psychologist Timothy Leary coined in the 1960s. Leary assimilated the term from the field of subatomic physics, in particular the spiral of magnets that align atoms before they are smashed together in a particle collider. That spiral of magnets is known as a cyclotron. The colliding particles in Leary’s social experimentation are the humans present. The concept is that psyches ¨smash¨ together in a creative context wherein unknown outcomes arise in an autonomous space.

On Power and Secrecy | LitLounge Sundays Salon > Stand Up Philosophy

Whitebox Art Center LitLounge

On Power and Secrecy

Sundays, December 14 & 28 | 3pm – 5 pm

Power: the capacity to act, an energetic principle. The most basic principle that denotes an ability to affect and to be affected by something or someone. One writer says that secrecy is at the core of power. But how do we define power? How many different types and experiences of power are there (being overpowered, empowered, in resistance, in domination, etc.)? How does secrecy harness its own power? Public or private: which contains a more vigorous degree of empowerment? And which is healthier: the crude power of the institution (megapower) or the ephemeral power of the fugitive (micropower)?
