Event Description
The Idea Café is intended to elicit energetic exchanges between attendees in response to the speaker's introduction. This session features artist-in-residence Emilio Chapela Pérez whose recent work examines the physical presence of books and perceptions of libraries as socialist entities. Chapela Pérez invites participants to consider the growing reliance on digital information and technology, how our need for and interest in printed books is changing, and how this shift impacts access to and ownership of information that exists on a virtual cloud. Lunch is provided. RSVP by January 15 to Emily Ryan at thecommons@ku.edu. Limit 40 guests.
