Min Hyoung Song on Nick Cave
Nick Cave made his first Soundsuit with Rodney King and the 1992 LA riots in mind. Boston College professor Min Hyoung Song, author of Strange Future: Pessimism and the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, discusses how aesthetic experiments based on the trauma of the 1992 events—such as Cave’s Soundsuits—imagine more livable futures.
