Location: Arun. 404B
Following on from last weeks discussions on the nature of ‘truth’ and postmodernism Anna Dumitriu – Artist in Residence at CCNR, will give a short presentation, as a starting point for a directed discussion, on Jean Baudrillard’s “Simulacra and Simulation”. Baudrillard claims that our society has replaced all reality and meaning with symbols and signs and that
what we consider to be real is actually a simulation of reality.
