Bill Wasik Talking At MoMA 18 May 2010

Recently the MoMA hosted a panel and set of performances on the changing role of the audience in both popular and experimental culture. Wasik, a senior editor at Harper’s, spoke briefly on the origins of the Flash Mob from the position of one of the first (if not THE first) mob event creators. The main point in his discussion was to explain his ongoing interest in collecting people together for no external purpose other than to amass.
