Situational Frustration

If you aren't in Chicago for the CAA conference then this won't make much sense to you. I wish I were going to this, it looks awesome. Except I am signed up for a workshop on grant writing. It seems like all the CAA sessions I want to go to are all at once. I am particularly interested in "The Situationist inverse of Relational Aesthetics." Although I'm not sure we've really established what Relational Aesthetics is outside of saying, "Rirkrit Tiravanija and Liam Gillick and those guys."
