  • Serpentine Gallery Memory Marathon, 12 - 14 October 2012: The Serpentine Gallery Memory Marathon was seventh annual festival of ideas. This multi-disciplinary event featured a wide range of participants, including leading artists, architects, film-makers, musicians, scientists, theorists and writers in a continuous, performative programme of explorations, musical and theatrical performances, film screenings, discussions and experiments. During the three-day festival, audience members were transported on a deeply evocative journey through music, culture and history, considering the importance of memory in law and biology, learning what animal brains 'do' and how machines 'think' in the company of experts from a wide range of scientific fields. Participants included former REM vocalist Michael Stipe; filmmakers Amos Gitai and David Lynch, who presented a new film; historians Jay Winter and Donald Sassoon, who explored the theme of War Memory; celebrated neuroscientist Israel Rosenfield, who introduced The Problem of Memory with writer John Hull, robotics expert Luc Steels and Grand Master of Memory Ed Cooke; artists Olivier Castel and Ed Atkins on Deception and Self-Deception; scent expert Sissel Tolaas on Sensory Memory. Other contributors include Harvard astronomy professor Dimitar Sasselov; writer and critic John Berger; writer Douglas Coupland; poet John Giorno; writer and cultural historian Marina Warner; author and technologist China Miéville; artists Gilbert & George; architects Jacques Herzog, Pierre de Meuron and Fumihiko Maki; composer Gavin Bryars with poet and painter Etel Adnan. The Memory Marathon was dedicated to Eric Hobsbawm.
