Tonight: Karl Hess in the World of Ideas

The Galleries at Moore continues its 2019 Faculty Triennial tomorrow night with a video essay created by professor Daniel Tucker. The experimental documentary titled Local Control: Karl Hess in the World of Ideas follows the story of writer Karl Hess as he navigates political groups of the 1960s and promotes his ideas of localism.

The film addresses the often said phrase “All Politics Are Local” and asks what exactly local level politics looks like for some of the most diverse citizens of America.

The film will be screened at the Galleries at Moore tomorrow from 6-8pm.

The 2019 Triennial also features “Where is the Moon?” a conversation with Derrick Pitts, lead astronomer at the Franklin Institute. Pitts will speak about his life and work this Wednesday at the Galleries from 11:30-12:30am.
