Laura U. Marks will give a lecture titled “Luminous Hidden Images” at Hold Me Now – Feel and Touch in an Unreal World, Studium Generale Rietveld Academie, for one of the “preliminary programs” on Wednesday, 7 March, 13:30 hrs (Rietveld Gym, Fred. Roeskestraat 96, Amsterdam).


Laura U. Marks’ theory of haptic visuality within intercultural cinema was the inspiration for Optic to Haptic Cinema (OH Cinema), an infrastructural experiment established during the exhibition phase of Casco’s transition to Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons, 27 May to 16 July 2017.


In affinity with one another, Casco and Studium Generale Rietveld Academie will co-host Marks’ lecture and Casco curator Staci Bu Shea will moderate the conversation after the talk. Marks will sketch how humans’ intimate sensory experiences can assist a creative becoming with the cosmos through embodied thinking, ecology, and the process philosophies of Mulla Sadra, who wrote, “what are perceived by the five senses are luminous hidden images existing in another world.”
