Лекцыя: Музыка — паміж утопіяй і дыстопіяй (27.01.18)

Студзень 25, 2018

“Якую ролю музыка грае ў розных візіях ідэальнага грамадства — ад Платона і Томаса Мора да Берліоза і Скінэра? Як уяўляюць сацыяльныя функцыі музыкі фантасты і анты-ўтапісты? Як палітычныя і творчыя рухі апошняга стагоддзя грунтуюць свае ўтапічныя сусветы на рытме і музыцы? Дзе мяжа паміж гармоніяй і тыраніяй?”
