Rita Delgado (residency)

May 31 - June 12


To the nearsighted (and curious):
Struggling to see things in the distance is seen as something common and irrelevant although we are seeing less and less. The number of myopic people grows exponentially, without any attention being paid to this pathology. In this meeting, we’ll finally be focusing on Myopia!
Without ostracizing those who suffer from this disorder and looking for distant empathy, we’ll examine possible causes and symptoms, reveal how a myopic eye “sees” and reflect on the implications of this disease on our perception of the World and our relationship with Others.
Is there anything we can do to stop this epidemic from developing? Or is myopia inherent to our human condition?
