INTERACTIVE PRACTICE: A Kind of Rapture
In the mid-90-s the American photographer Robert Bergman travelled through America’s Rust Belt and took a series of stunning photos of ordinary people in extraordinary states of openness and suffering. Bergman’s book – A Kind of Rapture – will be our departure point for exploring the experiential differences between empathy and compassion.
