This seems like it would be an interesting show to look at while listening to Rook, for those of you in the New York area.

I'm really interested to see how they continue to use the new space. It seems, from briefly looking at this exhibit on-line, as though they've picked up some interesting ideas about how to extend what they present/organize to the virtual sphere from their time in between buildings.

Also, I'm interested to know how an exhibit would "unfold like a visual novel." Interesting kind of reverse ekphrasis. Has anyone seen this show yet?

Thanks for alerting us to this show (although, being out west, I will miss it). Apparently, in part, it is inspired by W. G. Sebald's book of the same title. (A book that I would, along with ALL of his other words recommend strenuously to everyone!)

Yes, yes, yes! Sebald is one of those authors I utterly relish. Like Edna O'Brien and JM Coetzee and Nadine Gordimer and Jose Saramago, I have made a conscious effort to save some of his books for later (that old struggle not to binge on excellent authors...).

I'm going to go see this exhibition on Sunday, if anyone is around and cares to join me.
