Film Screening and Conversation with Oraib Toukan

On Wednesday July 22 we are delighted to be welcoming artist Oraib Toukan to speak about her work, in particular When Things Occur: a 'desktop film' based on Skype conversations with Gaza inhabitants over the summer of 2014. This powerful and topical film probes the face of mourning and grief – its digital embodiment, transmission, and representation. It asks how the gaze gets channeled within the digital realm, how empathy travels, who is 'local' in the representation of war, and what it means to view suffering 'at a distance'.

The film will be made available ahead of the event via a protected Vimeo link for all those who register.

Article by Delia Moldovan is published - Astrology & Agriculture.

Cover of Journal - detail of title.PhD research student Delia Moldovan has published an article entitled ‘Astrology and Agriculture in the Calendar of the Offiziolo of Charles VIII (Fondazione Giorgio Cini, inv. 2502/4)’, in the periodical Rivista di storia della miniatura (22 2018). The article is an interdisciplinary approach to the miniatures of the calendar opening the Officium parvum Beatae Mariae Virginis per annum, held in the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice. The study sheds new light on the zodiac signs and the occupations of the months depicted in the calendar, particularly investigating two key features characterising the Milanese court of the late fifteenth century: the interest in astrology and the importance given to agriculture.
