Two writers, Kenneth Goldsmith and David Kishik, unbeknownst to each other, wrote books reimagining Walter Benjamin's unfinished masterpiece about Paris in the 19th century, The Arcades Project, as being completed in New York in the 20th. While Kishik wrote a history of Benjamin's "new" work, Goldsmith actually completed it. Their restylings of Benjamin's book are at once strikingly similar and radically different.
Please join the authors as they read excerpts from their books and discuss their approaches to their own work and to the work of Walter Benjamin. Their talk is moderated by Eric Jarosinski of NeinQuarterly.
