CANADIAN CENTRE FOR ARCHITECTURE “Speed Limits”
08.08.2009, 13:56

In a show that holds up the CCA’s usual intelligent standards, Stanford Italianist Jeffrey T. Schnapp presents his angle on the centenary of Futurism by examining the legacy of its most fervent dream. We can expect not only streamlining and hygienic bodies but also—among the show’s 240 works including videos, photographs, posters, and collages—ruminations on city and country, information architectures, “24 frames a second,” and chemical stimulants. Explicit in Schnapp’s framing of the exhibition—and in the multiauthored catalogue-cum-reader that accompanies the show—is a critical questioning of the beauty of speed, now vexed by the cost of progress: Our cultural Luddism increasingly poses slow food against fast, “mindfulness” against Benjaminian distraction, and reflection in place of “blink” decisions.
