Notes on the presentation

Picasso’s collages: “The Collaged City”

The modernist dream of the café as a(n effective and radical) medium of discourse

The cubist idea of representing any sight as a sum of glimpses

“For the Cubists (influenced by Cezanne) the visible was no longer what confronted the single eye, but the totality of possible views taken from points all around the object (or ) person depicted” (Berger, 1972 p.18)

To represent our knowledge of an object and compress it into one moment- one synthesized    (Hughes or Berger: collage/montage/mosaic not synthesis) view.
