February’s reading coincides with DIM’s exhibition of Cinema + Disjunction, presenting an excerpt from David Harvey’s The Condition of Postmodernity. The Vancouver premiere screening of Adrian Blackwell’s Night Equals Day and Daniel Young and Christian Giroux’s Every Building, Or Site, That a Building Permit Has Been Issued for a New Building in Toronto in 2006 brings to the West two recent structural approaches to development in Toronto. Harvey’s answer to Fred Jameson’s Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism, and Jean-François Lyotard’s The Postmodern Condition has been a significant influence on Young, Giroux and Blackwell’s work because of Harvey’s rigorous basis of his analysis of cultural and social change, economics, and his special emphasis on social geography and the production of space.
