We have come to think of art as a way of talking about things in our world. That could be political events, social situations or even our personal feelings. In this talk writer, lecturer and curator Dr Michael Paraskos will use the work of Jacob Kramer, Stanley Spencer and others to present a radical new theory based on his study into Orthodox Christian icon painting, to suggest instead art is a window into another world.
