‘We are as we look’ is a cycle directed by Paula Bonet that combines literature and painting. Through conversations between authors, readings of texts and live painting, it seeks to teach us how the gaze influences thought. In this fourth event on April 25, we will have the presence of the writer and art curator Nathalie Léger and the journalist Anna Starobinets. Under the direction of the event by Paula Bonet herself, the authors will talk about how images influence their texts, taking various examples as reference. On the colloquium table, the public will be able to see on the screens in the room the notes, drawings and paintings that Paula will be taking in her notebooks.
