Free BPS History of Psychology Centre seminar in London
A free BPS public seminar exploring the relationship between kinaesthesia - the sensation by which bodily position, weight, muscle tension, and movement are perceived - and avant garde artists will be held tonight (1 February 2016) in London from 6-7:30pm.
The seminar ‘Kinaesthesia and the Avant-garde' is the second of two seminars in a series called the History of the Psychological Disciplines. The series is hosted by the BPS History of Psychology Centre in conjunction with University College London.
During the presentation the speaker, Dr Irina Sirotkina (Russian Academy of Sciences, Institute for the History of Science and Technology, Moscow) will discuss different avant garde artists who were athletic, engaged in sport and eager to use kinaesthesia as a creative resource.
