The reading group is organized by the Vasari Research Centre for Art and Technology and meetings will be held in the Vasari (basement of 43 Gordon Square, below the cinema). The reading group is an opportunity for Birkbeck students and staff interested in digital culture and aesthetics to gather and discuss relevant texts, artworks and developments in the field.

The first meeting will include a discussion on a chapter from Orit Halpern’s recent book Beautiful Data: A History of Vision and Reason since 1945 and a screening of a selection of the film work of the designers Ray and Charles Eames.
