Saturday 3 March, 2pm
These get-togethers are one hour talks between artists, researchers, curators, policy makers and philosophers. Informal and informative, we have five events in the first series this spring.
Jessica Kelly is a visual artist based in Leitrim. In winter 2017 she hosted The Waiting Room, an experimental salon series at the old railway station in Mohill. Her work is informed by philosophies of technology, dance and spirit, and utilises video, installation, text, and performance. Collaboration and discourse are also frequent features of her practise. Present interests include the spectral image, commemoration and after-death existences.
David Berman is a Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Trinity College, Dublin. His books include A History of Atheism in Britain, Routledge 1990, George Berkeley: Idealism and the Man, OUP 1994 and Berkeley: Experimental Philosophy, Phoenix Books 1997. More recently, he has done fascinating work on ideas and beliefs about the after-life, as well as developing a philosophy of coffee.
This is a free event but we would ask that you book in advance so that we have the right amount of seatng available to accomodate everyone comfortably.
