Márton Orosz’s lecture will address the holistic and concept-oriented approach of György Kepes and his understanding of art’s capacity to foster social transformation as a collaborative effort. A painter, designer, photographer, urban planner, curator, art theorist, editor, and educator, Kepes established the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) at MIT, in 1967, as a think-tank for artistic agency. Orosz will discuss his visionary programme and utopian project to reconcile the “two cultures” in the Cybernetic Age, revealing some of the Center’s lesser known visual practices that aspired to reach a higher synthesis of human integrity by exploring the relationship between the media and the senses. He will also map out the trans-regional circulation of Kepes’s ideas on the integration of art, science and technology, positioning Southeast Asia as a significant catalyst of Kepes’s legacy.
