MoMA’s “Public Dreams and Private Needs”

Last Friday, as part of the schedule of events around the opening of Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream, the Museum of Modern Art hosted a symposium titled “Public Dreams and Private Needs” in which each of the five teams’ leaders were invited to speak about issues related to their project. Jeanne Gang chose to talk about “Ecology, Social Justice, and Community Involvement” with Chicago journalist Kari Lydersen, who has covered many of the same issues. Video from Jeanne’s presentation is below; I make the first of several cameos around the 20:00 mark to discuss the financial models related to our project.
