“I believe that art can change the world. I believe that art and freedom are
necessarily related. There are no facts to support these claims. Still, I carry
these beliefs formed decades ago.  How do some beliefs remain and what do I
gain by believing?  At risk of sounding ridiculous, I will try to explain.”

– Gregg Bordowitz

Blaffer Art Museum presents a public lecture by Gregg Bordowitz in conjunction with screenings of his landmark films “Fast Trip, Long Drop” and “Habit.” This event helps situate Tony Feher’s artistic practice within the context of AIDS activism, which has been a formative influence on the artist’s life and work. Gregg Bordowitz is an artist and writer. For the past few years, Bordowitz has turned his attention to performance. Professor Bordowitz teaches in Film, Video, New Media, and Animation Department at the School of Art Institute of Chicago, and is on the faculty of the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program.
