a talk for two

The Anaconda’s Song

(Le chant de l'anaconda)

Pierre Déléage
Seulgi Lee

Seulgi Lee has invited anthropologist Pierre Déléage for a joint talk about common concerns.

The focus will be on oral and written transmission of knowledge in the light of their practical experiences in Mexico. The event will also be an opportunity to look into the points of contact between anthropological and artistic research methods and the ways their findings are formulated.
