The Origins of Modernist Thought

Twenty Summers


As part of our collaboration with 20 Summers, we bring you a recorded conversation with Nobel Prize winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel, and Emily Braun, Distinguished Professor of 20th Century European and American Art at Hunter College. Their topic: The Age of Insight: the Origins of Modernist Thought, and how we understand the role of the mind, brain and consciousness in art.
