Tuesday 24 October | On the occaision of his third solo exhibition, Steps and Marches, Marcin Dudek spoke with Professor Mark Levine.
Mark Levine is Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Exeter. His research focuses on the role of social identity in pro-social and anti-social behaviour and examines the meaning behind patterns of group behaviour that lead to violence – or what is some-times referred to as “the rules of disorder”. Currently Mark is involved in three interdisciplinary collaborative projects exploring the role of identities and behaviour in the digital age.
Beatrice de Gelder, who introduced the discussion, is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, Faculty of Neuroscience and Psychology at Maastricht University (Netherlands). Her research interests include behavioral and neural emotion processing from facial and bodily expressions, multisensory perpeption and interaction between auditory and visual processes, and nonconscious perception in neurological patients.
The conversation addressed the convergent issues between Professor Levine's research and Dudek's exhibition at Edel Assanti, Steps and Marches, looking specifically at crowd psychology and control, hooliganism, collective identity and group violence and its origins.
'Marcin Dudek: Steps and Marches' was on view at Edel Assanti from 22 September - 4 November 2017.
