Misguided Eyes


January 11, 2018 | 8pm

Starting from Nicholas of Cusa’s descriptions of absolute seeing in De Visione Dei (1453), a treatise written on the verge of the modern era, the talk takes a closer look at the “god trick” of an eye that sees everything from nowhere and where it operates in visual apparatuses and practices today.

This public lecture is part of the Home Workspace Program 2017-18.
