Neuroesthetics Talk Series goes Deutsche Guggenheim

“Seeing with Eyes Closed: The immeasurable realm of subjective experience”

The panel discussion is the third event of the “Art and Neuroscience” series organized by the Association of Neuroesthetics (AoN) in collaboration with the Deutsche Guggenheim. Following the first two rounds of talks, “The Utopia of Communication” and “When Neuroscience meets Filmmaking”, this time the focus of the debate will be on the immeasurable realm of subjective experience and on its potentiality to stretch the boundaries of our conceptual tools and methods.

The discussion takes inspiration from the ongoing project “Seeing with Eyes Closed” by artist Ivana Franke together with neuroscientist Ida Momennejad and the AoN.

Invited speakers are Ivana Franke and Ida Momennejad, journalist and critic Niklas Maak, artist Carsten Nicolai, neuroscientist Daniel Margulies.

An installation by Ivana Franke will be on view at the Deutsche Guggenheim 23–25 March and can be experienced before and after the event.

The event is curated by Elena Agudio.
