Out-of-body, Out-of-time: Brain mechanisms of embodiment

Lecture performance by Olaf Blanke

Invited by Melvin Moti

Olaf Blanke is specialized in being in two places at once: materializing and personifying a shadow person and transmitting the consciousness of the self into the other self’s second version. In a public performance at the auditorium of the Kaiserin-Friedrich-Foundation for the Continuing Education in Medicine at the invitation of artist Melvin Moti, Blanke will attempt to unlearn the audience from being one with oneself to becoming two with oneself.

Olaf Blanke is assistant professor of cognitive neuroscience and laboratory director of the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience (LNCO)/ Brain Mind Institute in Lausanne. Melvin Moti's new film installation is shown at the Neue Nationalgalerie as part of the 5th Berlin Biennale.
