To quote Columbia's literature, "At this occasion, unseen procedures of perception and experience will be exposed and encountered. By traversing the borders of the real and turning thought into action, the opening night of the Center for Broken Thought intends to provide a bridge to the extreme, and therein a new form of vitality."
