Call for Presentations

To witness and be aware of the fullness of the impact of exceptional nursing…is a sacred emotional uplifting experience…This realisation permeates ones whole being, bringing peace, endless gratitude and the deepest respect. As a result one can become a better person, simply wanting to radiate the same love to all within one's reach.

[UPDATE] From God's eye to the Big Brother's room. Geographies of espionage. ONLINE: May 2014

Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 2:15am

The function of the eye that spies on us all apparently has never been benevolent, be it a tangible eye, an intangible, or a technological one. From the stern God of the Old Testament — who tracked down the culprits and punished them — to the evolution of modern dystopias, the eye has become increasingly implacable, ubiquitous, and immediate in its expressions, so that there is no time, nor space, left for a postponed punishment. If we want to find a good eye, a fair spy, it is necessary to shift to the side of the observer, of the hero (in this case, with no anti prefix), who sacrifices his/her safety for a larger good, with no doubts or hesitations.

Prague, Czech Republic

Call For Presentations:

When Pandora's box emptied all of its ills that would plague the world, one small winged creature still remained: hope. The project inquires into the nature of this gift. Is hope, in fact, a good, encouraging us to do or be good? Or is it an evil; an illusion, perhaps an impossible fantasy? How does hope manifest itself in the world, in language, literature, and the arts? How – should – hope be encouraged? Is hope individual or collective in nature? Or both? What does hope contribute to individual or national identity?
