Join us for a film screening and discussion of Andrea Crespo’s hour long animated film, [intensifies] (2016). The film engages with autism as an embodied and socio-cultural identity and is featured in Crespo’s current List Projects exhibition. Dr. Caroline Robinson, Post Doctoral Fellow in the Autism and Social Brain Research Department at MIT’s Kanwisher Lab and the Harvard Society of Fellows, will lead a post-screening discussion to help tease out the nuances that are present in understanding the culture of autism and to characterize the diagnosis of autism beyond pathology and as an entity that is talked about in various ways.
This program is free and open to all but RSVP is encouraged. To RSVP, please visit the event page on the MIT List Visual Art Center website.
