REPRESENTING KNOWLEDGE AND REALITY:
THE POLITICS OF VISIONΒ 

This interdisciplinary course focuses on examining and questioning representations and constructions of knowledge and reality. In what has been termed a β€˜post-truth’ era, with the emergence of fake news as a political tool, it is useful to examine the question of what it how important it is to know, to see and to interpret.Β Β 

Through eight different textual and artistic encounters ranging from scientific and philosophical treatises to book-length poems, art exhibitions, novellas and film, we explore depictions of structures of knowledge and individual embodied experiences and perspectives, paying careful attention to the power (im)balances at play when these come up against each other.Β Β 

We explore these issues over the course of 8 discussion sessions, and at the same time examine the degree to which science, writing, art, criticism, or a combination of all three can help us achieve diverse, interconnected and collective means of perception and understanding.Β
