« Seeing Right ». On Neurosurgery, Art and Design

Professor Hugues Duffau is a French neurosurgeon who has dedicated his research to the concept of neuroplasticity, which he has been deploying for the past twenty-five years in his practice of awake surgery. He has a unique ability to "see right" with minimal medical imagery in the operating room, and his results are among the best in the world. Yet his theses and his modus operandi are still largely misunderstood. In January 2023, he asked a group of young artists and designers to help him put into images his knowledge of the mechanisms of brain plasticity. We will talk about this experience and how drawing and images can contribute to the elaboration of scientific knowledge.

Patricia Ribault is Professor of Performative Design Research at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin since 2020 and Principal Investigator of the Cluster of Excellence « Matters of Activity » at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. She is also a lecturer at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She began her career by studying applied arts and ceramics in Paris and by learning glass blowing in England and Murano. Her research focuses on the body, gesture, work, technique, art, industry and design, and, more recently, on interspecific relations and posthumanist studies. Most recent publication: Design, Gestaltung, Formatività. Philosophies of Making (ed.), Birkhaüser 2022.
