Join Shahram Khoshbin, physician and Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, for a conversation about William Forsythe’s interactive installation City of Abstracts, 2000. Khoshbin will elaborate on Forsythe’s reference to his choreographic objects as “instruments for self-knowledge” and discuss the relationship between the brain and movements of the human body. Complementing his clinical work, Khoshbin teaches the course Training the Eye: Improving the Art of Physical Diagnosis, in which Harvard medical students apply close-looking skills from observing artworks in Boston museums to patient care.
