Jeffrey Kipnis & Eric Owen Moss: Look, you got it all wrong! (March 2, 2015) Part 4



Jeffrey Kipnis prefaces the final conversation of the Look! You got it all wrong series by introducing the session’s topic: history. Eric Owen Moss proposes history as a way of defining coordinates to orient oneself, presenting images ranging from the Nazca lines to Lucien Freud, and quotes from Ecclesiastes to Veronica Wedgwood’s “History is an art–like all the other sciences.” Kipnis and Moss discuss precedents, experience, significance, learning about architecture historically. With a student in the audience they discuss John Lukacs’s The Hitler of History.
