Bowie, a new book by Simon Critchley, Chair of Philosophy at the New School for Social Research in New York, explores David Bowie’s songs by combining personal narratives of Bowie’s life with meditations on identity. Critchley discusses the singer’s life and music with panelists from a variety of disciplines.


The Kristina Barr Lectures were established through a generous gift by the Barr Fund to the Chicago Contemporary Campaign.
