“Seeing Madness: Insanity, Media, and Visual Culture,” a lecture delivered at the House of World Cultures in Berlin, November 2, 2013.

W. J. T. Mitchell, after Dr. Brian Oblivion (coming soon…)
The television screen is the retina of the mind’s eye. Therefore the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television.
