High Bay Gallery, Great Hall — Level 2

This talk will follow the trajectories of disruption historically and in contemporary culture. The first part of the lecture will focus on historical disruption tactics within and outside of art from performance artists of the 70s, to Gay and Lesbian AIDS activism of the 80’s and 90’s to current social jamming. The 2nd half will focus on how Bay Area tech companies are appropriating “disruption” as a tactic and strategy in order to liberate public services up for possible revenue generating ventures.
