From the Spine to the Stars

New Cross House, London

Why does your back hurt so bad?

It all started roughly fourteen billion years ago….

In this discussion and book launch event for Spinal Catastrophism, author Thomas Moynihan reveals how a secret lineage of thinkers including J.G. Ballard, William Burroughs, Georges Bataille, Daniel Barker and CCRU deciphered the human spine as a map of geotrauma, synthesizing psychoanalysis, geology, biology, and neuroanatomy to create a theoretical monstrosity that transforms our image of what it means to be human.
