Picture Yourself in a Burning Building - Scott Treleaven Lecture
Time & Location
About The Event
Scott Treleaven presents his autobiographical essay ‘Picture Yourself in a Burning Building’. In it the listener meets him in his various ages and phases: the child who sees the fairies, the teen who discovers his queerness, the young occult explorer who strives to find and lose himself. Over the course of forty minutes he takes us into his inner life and his outer experiences of the AIDS epidemic, 90s queer zine culture, phenomenology, Buddhist psychology and anarchism. Ultimately he questions whether or not - in an era of precarious irrationality - it might be time to put some old ghosts to rest. The presentation is illustrated with images of his art of the past twenty years.
Scott is a friend of Treadwell's, whom we met in New York in 2016, giving this same presentation at the Occult Humanities Conference. We were blown away. We invite you to experience this highly personal, questioning presentation which made us fall in love with him.
