The symposium is organised by West Den Haag in collaboration with the Lectorate Art Theory & Practice.

FEEDBACK #1 - MARSHALL MCLUHAN AND THE ARTS

Feedback #1 - Marshall McLuhan and the Arts’ is a recursive project with a focus on the radical, experimental publications of scientist and media guru Marshall McLuhan. In 1962, he predicted the ‘Global Village’ and in 1964 he published ‘The medium is the message’. McLuhan became one of the most famous public intellectuals of the 1960s and an icon of pop culture. ‘Feedback #1’ brings artists, designers, scholars and thinkers together to probe, encounter and contest the light-speed electronic information environments we inhabit today.
