Tav Falco / Mondo Memphis tour


Tav Falco will be making some somewhat rare appearances to promote his new book, Mondo Memphis, including a stop in Brooklyn at the Powerhouse Arena. Here's everything you need to know:

MONDO MEMPHIS is a dual, 450-page encyclopedic history and psychogeography of the city of Memphis, written by legendary performer Tav Falco and cultural critic Erik Morse and published by Creation Books. MONDO MEMPHIS is both an original history of the gothic South and an intertext of the urban legends, rural fables and literary clich├ęs that have made the Bluff City simultaneously a metropolis of dreams and a necropolis of terrors.


Falco and Morse will talk on the topics of ‘Fantasy, Urbanity and Topography’, in which they discuss “writing” the space of the city/suburb (both in its Northern and Sun Belt incarnations) as a source of imagination, sensuality, horror and architectonics.
