To See or Not To See - An art talk by Ana Lamata
Ana Lamata, Ph.D. in Contemporary Art History, Spain, has largely focused her research on the resonances between art and science. To See or Not to See is a reflection on how at the beginning of the 20th century, the discovery of X-rays changed the way the world was perceived and the notion of reality itself. Today, when new technologies are challenging again our conceptions of reality, art can play a vital role in decoding these discoveries, questioning conventions and just helping us see.
