Meeting Description:

From Freudian psychoanalysis to Deleuze and Guattari's schizoanalysis, from Greek and Roman tragedy to neuroimaging, one of the driving preoccupations of science and art has been the relationship between the exterior world and the inner reaches of the human mind. When delving beyond the realm of the material into the (un)conscious, what is at stake? What is the difference between vision and perception? How does the perception of personal realities shape our awareness of social, political and cultural histories? Do we imagine our own reality and what we hold to be true? What role does language play in the articulation of our realities? In what ways is history merely a concept of our minds and not a globally accepted truth? Can imagination serve as a scaffold that links our histories and realities?
