Join us for the second meeting of the ADBC, with Paola Antonelli

Superscript invites you to the second meeting of ADBC, the Architecture and Design Book Club, with our special guest — Paola Antonelli.

On December 7, join Superscript and MoMA’s senior curator of architecture and design Paola Antonelli as we delve into the world of Philip K. Dick’s classic text, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?  Most famously the basis for the 1982 film Blade Runner (and the vast majority of science fiction imagery from the last thirty years), this 1968 novel popularized the idea of the cyborg and has had a lasting effect on dreams and fears concerning technology in the public sphere.

Superscript will be hosting the second edition of ADBC in a venue fittingly celebratory of this post-apocalyptic narrative, and invites you to drop by and revisit this science fiction classic. We’ll have copies of the text available, but feel free to B.Y.O.Book!
