ESOTERIC

Series: Around the Table
Date: Wednesday 27 February 2019
Time: 13:00
Venue: AA Lecture Hall

Esoteric is defined as what is restricted to or intended for an enlightened or initiated minority, as it tends to be understood by only an exclusive group of people with a specialised knowledge or interest. Esoteric is… arcane | obscure | recondite | abstract | enigmatic | cryptic | secret… and can be linked to segregation | irreconcilability | elitism | verbosity …we challenge speakers to address this issue that is prevalent in the AA in this roundtable discussion, through the exploration of methods that can reduce the exclusivity within our profession.


Each lecture presents fragments of material from Quotidien and AArchitecture issues, through the invitation of authors of articles that have been submitted to either publication, as well as other guests whose work might be relevant to the theme of the lecture. The lectures aim to generate conversation between and amongst students, through the following themes; Recognition, Copyright and Esoteric, that we feel are especially pertinent to students in the AA, but also adequately addressed within the school community. Each lecture proposes to bring together 4-5 guest speakers who would present his or her work, in slides of text and visual images, and how it relates to the relevant theme  for approximately 5 minutes, before a general 30 minute roundtable discussion that will be chaired and moderated by one of us, that is open to the audience and other students to participate and ask questions as well.
