Seeing with Eyes Closed. Third discussion of the series
In 2010, the Deutsche Guggenheim and the Association of Neuroesthetics (AoN) inaugurated the discussion series 'Art and Neuroscience' as a forum for exchanging information between the two disciplines. Following the first two rounds of talks 'The Utopia of Communication' and 'When Neuroscience meets Filmmaking', this time the focus is on the immeasurable realm of subjective experience and on its potentiality to stretch the boundaries of our conceptual tools and methods. Taking Ivana Franke's work Seeing with Eyes Closed as a point of departure, the neuroscientist Ida Momennejad, the artist Carsten Nicolai, the critic Niklas Maak, and Franke herself discuss immeasurable realm of subjective experience.
