Cancelled: Beethoven and Beyond

Saturday, March 28, 2020 11 AM Goethe-Institut
This event has been cancelled. Please visit the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research website for the most up-to-date event schedule.

In this daylong symposium, explore Beethoven’s transformational impact on Western music, artistry, culture, and sensibility. What explains his extraordinary singularity? From what cultural, political, and philosophical sources did Beethoven draw? In what ways did he invent the modern artist and celebrity—and why does he stand, to this day, as a symbol of artistic autonomy and mercurial genius? Participants include faculty from the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research: Susan Buck-Morss, Scott Burnham, Bora Yoon, Du Yun, Kate Wagner, Elaine Sisman, and Olivier Glissant.
