EGS Free Public Lecture: Carlos Amorales

We are happy to announce that the third lecture in the EGS Free Public Lecture series will be conducted by Professor Carlos Amorales.

Carlos Amorales
“How to Wear a Mask”

“A kind of mask, designed on the one hand to make a definite impression upon others, and on the other to conceal the true nature of the individual”. The “persona” was for Carl Jung the social face an individual presented to the world.

The act of creating a persona by masking oneself, will be analyzed as a distancing move that allows individuals vantage points from which to observe and interact in social situations. In this sense, the act of masking oneself, will ultimately be seen as an act of self-exile from a surveying society, in which the limits between public and private realms have become porous.

Through a series of artistic examples, in which the act of masking is exercised at different levels (within the self, through visual images and in written and musical languages), the usefulness of masking and wearing masks will be explored and discussed.

This event is scheduled for July 1st, at 8 p.m. CET (11 a.m. PST).

It will be broadcast via Zoom with 300 open spots available.

Zoom participants will be able to pose questions to Professor Amorales at the end of the lecture. Applicants will be admitted on a first-come-first-serve basis.
