What is a landscape? Is it the touch of Nature or is it the work of Mankind ? Is it space or the representation of space? Is it something we live in or something we look at?
Professor Jacques Leenhardt, Directeur d’Etudes at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), is a philosopher and a sociologist whose research focuses mainly on artistic productions such as literature, visual arts or gardens. In this conference, he will question the social construction of the so called ‘landscape’ throughout the history of perception and thoughts.
