Misguided Eyes | Natascha Sadr Haghighian

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.

Natascha Sadr Haghighian's research-based practice encompasses a variety of forms and formats and it often explores contemporary modes of vision and the potentials of the mimetic faculty. She uses large (sound) installations, texts, and performance as well as video to create situations in which experiences and propositions resulting from her research can be shared.
