Join us for a series of
performative dialogues between experts in diverse fields in conjunction with
the exhibition As it were… so to speak: A Museum Collection in dialogue with
Barbara Bloom. Each evening concentrates on a different aspect of “dialogue,”
pairing speakers demonstrating theory and practice. Unlike in traditional conversation
the speakers do not engage with one another, instead each addresses the subject
at hand and the audience members directly.
The Dialogue under observation program
features Hannah Hurtzig, a
Berlin-based curator and dramaturge whose work deals with communication in the
public sphere with Paul Pangaro,
a cybernetician and Professor of Interaction Design at the School of Visual
Arts, investigating the needs of human beings in relation to technology. Sponsored by
The Jewish Museum and the School of Media Studies.
