TOM MCCARTHY IS THE NEXT GUEST OF CIAC WEBINARS
On the 17th December, at 9am, CIAC invites British author Tom McCarthy for CIAC Webinars #3. In this third session, we intend to discuss the creation and writing process of the author’s most recent work, entitled The Making of Incarnation.
Starting with the famous “808” box, missing from Lillian Gilbreth’s archives, the author reflects on the relationship between the material and the digital; and the influence of time and motion studies on technological modernity, the creation of big data, and the process of mass observation and surveillance.
Tom McCarthy is a writer and visual artist. He has published the novels Remainder (2005), Men in Space (2007), C (2010), Satin Island (2015), and The Making of Incarnation (2021); and the essays Tintin and the Secret of Literature (2006), Tranmission and the Individual Remix (2012), and Typewriters, Bombs, and Jellyfish (2016). In addition to critical acclaim (Man Booker Prize shortlist, Goldsmith Prize, Windham-Campbell Literature Prize), the author’s work has been translated into over twenty languages and adapted for film, theater, and radio. Together with philosopher Simon Critchley, he founded and runs the International Necronautical Society (INS), dedicated to projects that “would do for death what the Surrealists did for sex.
Alfonso Palazon and Austin Fisher are already confirmed for the next editions.
Participation is free of charge and includes a certificate.
