Gustav Metzger in conversation with Joe Banks…

July 22, 2014

“White Heat: art, science and social responsibility in 1960s Britain” is an exciting one-day conference exploring the relationships between art, science and society in the 1960s. 50 years on, key figures from this period will join speakers from the fields of art and cultural history, the history and philosophy of science, contemporary art, science, activism and popular culture to revisit one of the most intense periods of intellectual and cultural ferment. The symposium takes place in the very lecture theatre where, in 1965, Gustav Metzger gave his iconic lecture-demonstration “The Chemical Revolution in Art”.

Contributors include Joe Banks, Alice Bell, Jonathan Benthall, John Dunbar, Bronac Ferran, Elizabeth Fisher, David Gale, Martin Kemp, Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon, Roger Malina, Gustav Metzger, Jerry Ravetz, Jasia Reichardt, Jonathan Rosenhead, Neal White and Robert M. Young.
