Kurt Schwitters and Walter Benjamin: The Modernity of the Baroque and Romanticism

We regret that Catherine Perret has had to cancel her talk, previously advertised for this date, due to ill health.

A Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) seminar.

Professor John Macarthur directs the research centre Architecture.Theory.Criticism.History (ATCH) at the University of Queensland, Australia. His research in the history and theory of architecture has focused on the conceptual framework and the history of picturesque aesthetics. His book, The Picturesque: Architecture, Disgust and Other Irregularities, was published by Routledge in 2007. He is currently researching projects on the Baroque in the 20th century, on architectural aesthetics, and on the architecture of Queensland. He is also an active critic of contemporary architecture. He is currently Visiting Professor at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
