Carsten Strathausen presents Neuroaesthetics—The Science of Art?

Over the last two decades, neuroaesthetics--the interpretation of art based on evolutionary theory and neuroscientific data--has developed into a prominent new field in the humanities. This lecture provides a critical-historical overview of neuroaesthetics that details both its promise and perils for the study of art and aesthetics.

Carsten Strathausen is Professor of German and English and the Catherine Paine Midldebush Chair in Humanities at the University of Missouri. His first book, The Look of Things. Poetry and Vision Around 1900,was published in 2003 with North Carolina UP. His second book entitled BioAesthetics. Making Sense of Life in Science and the Arts has just come out with Minnesota Press. The author of more than thirty scholarly articles, Strathausen is also the editor of A Leftist Ontology (Minnesota 2009) and the translator of Boris Groys’ book Under Suspicion (Columbia UP 2012).

 

Lecture made possible with support from the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, the Department of Art, the Department of Biology, the Department of Comparative Literature, Department of English, the Department of German & Scandinavian, the Department of Philosophy, the Environmental Studies Program, and the Oregon Humanities Center.

Mike Andrews: "Weird Wars and Other Battles"

Mike Andrews is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is the Executive and Creative Director at the Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists’ Residency. Andrews received a BFA from SAIC and MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Fueled by dynamic relationships between bright and dull colors, hard and soft materials and a range of scale, his sculptures and tapestries pointedly occupy the gallery. His work is informed by the grandeur of historical tapestries, non-representational abstract painting, and the delirium of home craft. His tapestries simultaneously function as both object and image.
