Miracle Marathon 2016: Carlo Rovelli

Italian theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli presents ‘Rituals Appease, Imagination Creates, Magical Thinking Misleads’. The Serpentine’s annual festival of ideas brought together practitioners from the fields of activism, art, anthropology, architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theology and science. The 2016 Serpentine Miracle Marathon focused in on ritual, repetition and magical thinking to consider ways in which the imaginary can not only predict, but also play a part in affecting long-term futures.
