Art vs. the development of human brain
A lecture by Professor Jerzy Vetulani

The human species is capable of deriving, assessing, and experiencing pleasure from art. Although the contemporary ape also likes to dabble with paints and a brush, the creation and perception of art are nevertheless human characteristics, not those of the ape. As a result of evolution, the human brain has developed areas that are characteristic of it alone; they conceal our humanity, which includes our capacity for
understanding and creating art.

A lecture is part of a programme accompanying the Masters of Dreams. Symbolism in the Bohemian Lands 1880–1914 exhibition.
