Rayson, David, 2015, Conference or Workshop, The Field: Looking and Thinking aloud at Thinking with John Berger, Cardiff, UK, 4-5 September 2014.
|Abstract or Description:||
The conference at Cardiff Metropolitan University placed focus on the transformative potential of Berger’s work for educational practice. Berger may be said to have kept a distance from the institutional lecture hall, seminar room or studio; yet his work, through an interdisciplinarity seemingly without boundaries, continues to impact upon a number of academic fields. In dedicating himself to ‘the job of thinker and artist’ (Sally Potter), Berger seems also consistently to have orientated himself towards the future and to practice: he is, in the words of Sukhdev Sandhu, ‘in the best sense, a teacherly writer and performer’ -- a teacherly method characterised, that is, by the principles of collaboration and equality.
