Nick Thorkelson on Herbert Marcuse, Philosopher of Utopia, A Graphic Biography with Ben Katchor.

Thorkelson discusses his new comics-format biography.  Marcuse (1898-1979) was a little-known German scholar when he became one of the 20th century's most unlikely pop stars: a celebrity philosopher. In the 1960s, his argument for a principled utopianism catalyzed the ideals of a rebellious generation.

Presented by Parsons School of Design and the School of Art, Media, and Technology. This event is happening at the New School University Center, Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105. For more information, got to events.newschool.edu.
