On 25 May 2021 Marco Pasi (at 18:00 CEST) will give a lecture, titled: “Witchcraft with Capital W”: The Magical Art of Chiara Fumai. The lecture is part of the Spring 2021 edition of the ongoing lecture series at Professur für Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaft ETH Zürich “Aesthetic and Scientific Epistemologies of the Occult in the XIX Century”, in a continued enquiry into aesthetic and scientific epistemologies of the occult during the long nineteenth century. On Tuesday evenings in May, through our second online series, we present approaches to the subject that combine methodologies drawn from art history, religious studies, media theory, anthropology and science studies.
In the fourth lecture, historian of religion, Marco Pasi will consider the presence of occult-related themes in the oeuvre of the late contemporary artist, Chiara Fumai (1978-2017).
