* There is some audio drop out in this recording. Irene Caesar was in her New York loft and the narriator was in Enschede, the Netherlands.

This Galery Talk was co-sponsored by Orensanz Art Gallery in SoHo, New York, USA.

Irene Caesar is a Russian born and NYC based philosopher, mystic, poet and conceptual artist who works in the traditional and digital media. Her early art work and writings in Russia in the late 80’s and early 90’s were predominantly esoteric and linked to the various mystical schools and especially theosophy of the turn of the 20th century. At the present moment she creates art works and writings both on the esoteric and exoteric levels.

Her most recent exoteric project is “A New History of Ideas in Pictures” (2008-2009) representing absurd performances documented by photography. She defines the objective of this project as the re-valuation of the major concepts of the human civilization, and, more precisely, as the ideological subversion and diversion of the outdated values that bring suffering to the millions of people.
