VIDEO: Darian Leader on Hands

Is it true that our only realities are increasingly virtual and digital devices have made us unable to concentrate? Psychoanalyst Darian Leader’s suggestion as to how we should think about these cultural transformations is nothing if not bold and original. ‘What if rather than focusing on the new promises or discontents of contemporary civilization, we see today’s changes first and foremost as changes in what human beings do with their hands?’

After his lecture, Darian Leader will engage in conversation with Anneleen Masschelein (KULeuven, professor Literary Studies/Cultural Studies).

in the framework of The Humane Body, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union
