Jeffrey Kipnis & Eric Owen Moss: Look, you got it all wrong! (March 2, 2015) Part 401:37:30

Jeffrey Kipnis prefaces the final conversation of the Look! You got it all wrong series by introducing the session's topic: history. Eric Owen Moss proposes history as a way of defining coordinates to orient oneself, presenting images ranging from the Nazca lines to Lucien Freud, and quotes from Ecclesiastes to Veronica Wedgwood's "History is an art--like all the other sciences." Kipnis and Moss discuss precedents, experience, significance, learning about architecture historically. With a student in the audience they discuss John Lukacs's The Hitler of History.
