The 2013/2014 lecture series centered around the theme of Interventions. This series examined the possibilities and types of interventions existing in the cultural realm today. Interventions are ruptures in systems or moments of directional change that often create new perspectives – like a New Year’s resolution or a political revolt. Historically, art and design interventions have run concurrently with, and sometimes led, new ways of seeing the world. The Interventions series began in September 2013 with London-based artist/designer Daniel Eatock’s lecture Subject to Change, followed by Micah White’s lecture The Future of Protest, and then architect Nader Tehrani’s lecture The Architecture of Installations. The series concluded with a lecture by artist Franco Mattes titled What Has Been Seen Cannot Be Unseen.
