I'm in Geneva this Friday 19th January to talk about retroculture + retropolitics, as part of the Innervision lecture series hosted by the bookstore Beckbooks and the record shop/record label Bongo Joe. 

Entrance is free of charge - swing by Le Pneu at 7pm to watch some retrolicious videos and ask tricky questions.

I'm also giving a longer retro-themed video illustrated talk in Lausanne at the Haute Ecole de Musique. Titled 'Everything Isn't A Remix' it starts at at 2pm on Saturday 20th and is open to the general public. Info here
