CURRENT AFFAIRS

NORTH KOREA CRISIs

North Korea worries by its military nuclear development, but also because it is a totalitarian dictatorship.

With a short historical outline, Pierre Rigoulot, historian and author, specialised in the communist regimes, will illustrate how North and South Korea have come to such a standoff.

He will also explain why Kim Jong-un is in such a military logic.

NEUROSCIENCES

habits, COMPULSIONS and addictions

The 2nd talk of our series on neurosciences, and in association with Brain Circle UK, will explore the habits, compulsions and addictions.

In the past 10 or 15 year, there’s been a shift in thinking about addiction, to a new appreciation that it is, at its root, a maladaptive form of learning. And like learning to ride a bike, addiction is not quickly unlearned.

retrospective

MODIGLIANI AT TATE MODERN

During his brief and turbulent life, Modigliani developed a unique and instantly recognisable pictorial style. Though meeting little success during in their time, his emotionally intense portraits and seductive nudes are now among the best-loved paintings of the 20th century.

An art historian will meet us in a private room and will tell us about Modigliani. We will then admire the highlight of the exhibition, 12 nudes, and discover his lesser-known but radical and thought-provoking sculptures, as well as his portraits
