PEN World Voices: Laurie Anderson and Chelsea Manning
Originally Aired: Thursday April 12, 2018
Chelsea Manning‘s release of hundreds of thousands of pages of classified documents has been described as “the information age exploding on itself.” Laurie Anderson‘s music and performance art — from Big Science to Homeland and Habeas Corpus — has been infused by a critique of American militarism and hubris.
In their respective areas they have been on the cutting edge of technology. They talk about the twin engines of resistance — art and activism — and a future that appears both liberated and threatened by technological innovation. Hosted by WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll.
