In this follow-up session to Sensing Mumbai, Part I—a blindfolded tour of the city—analyze and explore how we sense, interact with, and react to our cities differently when we lose our ability to see them. Discuss how vision relates to our notions of comfort and security and how its absence affects our interaction with urban textures, smells, rhythms, sounds, and emotions. This event begins with a 20-minute on-site visual experience that refers back to Sensing Mumbai, Part I.

This event will be conducted in English.

Participants: Rafique Baghdadi, journalist, researcher, noted film critic and historian; Colin Ellard, research psychologist and professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario; Nicholas Humphrey, theoretical psychologist and BMW Guggenheim Lab Advisory Committee member; David van der Leer, BMW Guggenheim Lab Curator; Aaron Pereira, host; Ramu Ramanathan, playwright-director and editor of PT Notes; Varsha Shirgaonkar, Department of History at SNDT Women’s University in Mumbai.
