[Syd] Hijacking Sustainability 9/7

edited June 2009 in events
Hijacking sustainability
Lectures & Talks; Free

The idea of "sustainability" has gone mainstream. Thanks to Prius-driving movie stars, it's even hip.

Adrian Parr, Hijacking Sustainability
In Hijacking Sustainability, Adrian Parr challenges Hollywood environmentalism, sustainability in politics, and the greening of junk space. The convergence of popular culture and the sustainability movement has given corporations an opportunity to ‘ecobrand’ their products. But that branding often makes no more than superficial gestures to sustainability. This should be a night to make us all squirm.
Join Adrian Parr as she illuminatingly interrogates the idea of sustainability.
Adrian Parr is a currently a Visiting Fellow at the iCinema Research Centre and  Associate Professor at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning and is the author of Deleuze and Memorial Culture.
Presented in collaboration with the iCinema Research Centre, the College of Fine Arts and the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales.
