IDS
PUBLIC
LECTURE
SERIES




Designed as an introduction to some of the most pressing questions driving contemporary thought and practice, the Inter-Disciplinary Seminar at the Cooper Union (IDS) consists of talks by artists, theorists, scientists, activists, writers, and other practitioners involved in the arts from positions that embody an interdisciplinary approach or that imply new uses for disciplinary traditions.



THE 2022-2023 IDS LECTURE SERIES
IS ORGANIZED INTO THREE THEMES


TRACE

WHERE WE REFLECT ON EVIDENCE, BETWEEN
AESTHETIC GESTURE AND ALGORITHMIC REASON.



PERFORMANCE

WHERE WE CONSIDER MEANING IN MOVEMENT
THROUGH EXPERIMENTS WITH SOUNDS AND THE BODY.



DISRUPTION

WHERE WE LOOK AT FORMS AND SCALES
OF SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION.




The Fall 2022 IDS lectures will take place in the Rose Auditorium at The Cooper Union, on Thursdays at 7pm EST, unless otherwise specified. They are free and open to the public upon proof of vaccination and booster, and use of a CDC-recommended mask. Please subscribe to our mailing list for weekly notifications.

The IDS public lecture series is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding from the Robert Lehman Foundation. The IDS public lecture series is also made possible by generous support from the Open Society Foundations.
