Anglia Ruskin University is proud to present an exciting opportunity to attend the a lecture by Aynouk Tan, fashion journalist, performance artist, cultural anthropologist and entrepreneur.
‘UPLOAD ME’ – UNDERSTANDING IDENTITY AND VISUAL CULTURE IN A DIGITAL AGE
Date: Monday 16th of February (11am-1pm)
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Campus, East Road, CB1 1PT (Rus 021)
In her lecture Aynouk Tan will discuss how the rise of new media influences our ways of perceiving ourselves and the other. What are the current characteristics of the rapidly changing visual culture? How do these developments change the nature who we are and consequently what it means to be a creative? By using theoretic concepts from philosophy, sociology as well as a wide range of modern day media clips, Tan will assert a plea for radical out-of-the-box-thinking.
‘Upload me’ is Tans’ second lecture at Anglia Ruskin University, following ‘The Real Me’ in which she explained why we wear the clothes we wear.
