The Gesture - 4/8

Series: Mark Cousins Friday Lectures
Date: Friday 5 December 2014
Time: 17:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 60 mins

This year’s Friday lectures follow from the previous three years.  The Gesture is considered as a fundamental cultural act, one which is not restricted to the human body or indeed the human being but which indexes a movement in the world which has a strong affective dimension.  The lecture course considers this from the point of the origins of drawing and issues which normally slip out of the net of architectural theory such as shape and movement.  

The lectures will take place on the following Fridays in Term 1 (Term 2 dates to be announced):

Friday 31st October (Week 5)
Friday 14th November (Week 7)
Friday 21st November (Week 8)
Friday 5th December (Week 10)

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
