Dialogue under observation: Hannah Hurtzig and Paul Pangaro
Thursday, April 11, 7:00 pm
The installation work of Hannah Hurtzig through her project Mobile Academy deals with the notion how knowledge is transferred in the act of communication in public space. Paul Pangaro, Professor of Interaction Design Program at the School of Visual Arts, is a cybernetician, performer and entrepreneur concerned with the cognitive and social needs of human beings in relation to the technology we use.
This event is presented as part of In Dialogue, a series of performative dialogues between experts in diverse fields in conjunction with the exhibition As it were… So to Speak: A Museum Collection in dialogue with Barbara Bloom. Each evening concentrates on a different aspect of “dialogue,” pairing speakers demonstrating theory and practice. Unlike in traditional conversation the speakers do not engage with one another, instead each addresses the subject at hand and the audience members directly. These events are in partnership with the New School for Public Engagement.
