The Planets in Imagination (Part 3) – Uranus, Neptune, Pluto
Thursday 7 Dec 2023, 1900 GMT
VENUE: BIS HQ, London and Online
A collaboration between Invisible College and the British Interplanetary Society. This three part evening series will look at the history, art history, myth and philosophy of the planets: open to all, whether scientifically or artistically-minded!
On December the 7th, the speakers will be Amir Naaman (Uranus), Kugan Vijayatharan (Neptune) and To Be Announced! (Pluto).
The third in a trilogy by the Invisible College. We are more accustomed to thinking of planets as strange and inhospitable matter, but historically they played a much more mythical and narrative role in human life. The Invisible College will revisit each planet in turn.
October 19th – Mercury, Venus, Earth
November 9th – Mars, Jupiter, Saturn
December 7th – Uranus, Neptune, Pluto
Invisible College is a philosophy project initiated in 2018 by the writer and artist Daniel Miller with the philosopher Nina Power and cultural theorist John Cussans. Inspired by the 17th century Invisible College, our general project is to promote the practice of philosophy through dialogue by collaborating to organize events with different private and charitable institutions and societies committed to the exercise of reason and imagination.
So far, they have worked with the Philadelphia Association in London, the Museum of American Art in Berlin, the magazine The Alienist in Prague, Gallery Libertine in Los Angeles and the international film project DAU in Paris.
