ON TOUCHING THE STRANGER WITHIN — MATERIAL WANDERINGS / WONDERINGS
Online lecture with the feminist theorist and quantum physicist Karen Barad. With an introduction by Lea Porsager and Lars Bang Larsen, who will also moderate the subsequent Q&A session.
With their book Meeting the Universe Halfway (2007) Karen Barad created a seminal new reading of Niels Bohr’s idea of quantum physics as a challenge to Western philosophy and our ethical practices. Barad’s proposition for a new type of materialist thinking – an ’agential realism’ in which matter and meaning are entangled – is a great inspiration for the work of Lea Porsager. Karen Barad is Distinguished Professor of Feminist Studies, Philosophy, and History of Consciousness at the University of California in Santa Cruz.
The talk will be in English and free of charge, it does not require registration.
It is possible to ask questions before or during the lecture. Questions should be e-mailed to email@example.com
The event is organised in a collaboration between Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Art Hub Copenhagen.
