Ways of Seeing Otherwise: Honoring John Berger in the Now-Time

19 October 2018 18:00 - 19:30

ZHdK, Room 6.K04

Seeing is neither innocent nor passive, but an active way of making sense of the world. The critique of consumerism in John Berger’s Ways of Seeing is more relevant now than ever, but much has changed since it appeared in 1972 when a student revolution against the establishment was in full swing. Where are we now? What still matters is who uses images for what purposes, and how the gap between word and image, between seeing and saying, is negotiated.
