On the eve of his eye surgery, visual culture savant Mark Cousins explores the role that visual experience plays in our individual and collective lives.

In a deeply personal meditation on the power of looking, he guides us through the riches of the visible world, a kaleidoscope of extraordinary imagery across cultures and eras.

At a time when we are more assailed by images than ever, he reveals how looking makes us who we are, lying at the heart of the human experience, empathy, discovery and thought. He shares the pleasure and pain of seeing the world, in all its complexity and contradiction, with eyes wide open.

Mark Cousins joins us for an online Q&A to discuss The Story of Looking on Thursday 23rd September. Find out more here
