Mark Cousins in conversation with Matthew Stadlen

Culture, Film

Looking can be an act of empathy or aggression. It can provoke desire or express it. And from the blurry, edgeless world we inhabit as infants to the landscape of screens we grow into, looking can define us. From great works of art to tourist photographs, from cityscapes to cinema, through science and protest, propaganda and refusals to look, the false mirrors and great visionaries of looking, writer and filmmaker Mark Cousins illuminates how we construct as well as receive the things we see.
