Ubuweb has posted an entire series of MP3’s of lectures given by Roland Barthes during his first 2 years' teaching at the Collège de France in 1977 and 1978.

Barthes had been elected to the Collège de France on Michel Foucault's recommendation, and the series of lectures began a few days after his inaugural lecture as the chair of semiology.
As I predicted a few weeks ago, Hilary Spurling's Matisse The Master won the Whitbread Book of the Year Award. It's only the fifth biography to do so, as the Whitbread loves novels.
Also, this Saturday is the last day to catch my curated group show, Means Without End, at Guild and Greyshkul in SoHo, which also has work by Fried and Tilman, along with Helena Almeida, Valie Export, Mauricio Kagel, and others.

Wish I could make the minimalism shows. More coming, I hope?
