Are we darkened by light?

Clock icon
14:00 – 16:00 21 Nov 2015
Location icon
Tate Modern, Starr Auditorium, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

Speakers: Catherine Heymans, Katie Paterson, Marek Kukula

Human history has been a quest to light the dark, but today most of humanity spends more time bathed in electronic light than our primary source: the sun. What different forms of light we are exposed to, and can we ever switch off?

A panel of artists, scientists and architects examine our contemporary urban experiences of light and how we understand 95% of the universe that we cannot see: dark energy and dark matter. What are the social and political implications of our lust for light, and are we now darkened by it?
With Catherine Heymans, Katie Paterson, Marek Kukula.
