Laurie Anderson presents, Spending the War Without You: Virtual Backgrounds. The River is the first in a series of six lectures, looking at the challenges we face as artists and citizens as we reinvent our culture with ambiguity and beauty. The talk will consider spending time in the slowdown – time in music and stories.
