At the occasion of the exhibition Mimétisme et psychasténie légendaire by Cari Gonzalez-Casanova at mfc-michèle didier gallery, on Friday April 6 at 6pm Derek Hodgson will give a conference: Camouflage in Nature, Art, and Mind.

Mimétisme et psychasténie légendaire takes Cari Gonzalez-Casanova’s book entitled “Home Guard Manual of Camouflage — Manuel de camouflage pour la protection du territoire” as its starting point. Inspired by the military manual of the same name written by Roland Penrose in 1941 for the British army, Gonzalez-Casanova’s publication reveals how and with what means politics of fear are implemented. Light is also shed upon the mechanisms of transmission and co-optation of fear on a public scale.


Derek Hodgson is Research Associate at the Department of Archeology, University of York (UK), exploring the relationship between neuroscience, cognition, archaeology, and anthropology.
