Old Traditions Die Hard

Description

Our contemporary world is constituted of close to eight billion individual human minds, and just as many individual realities. Despite this fact, human behaviour is heavily patterned and predictable, this is in large part due to custom and tradition.
When something appears to threaten our vision of reality, we fight tooth and nail to defend and preserve it. This session looks at different contested realities, exploring the ambiguity, illusion and uncertainty integral to shaping notions of ‘the real’.
