LEGO is the world's most popular toy, but why? How did it become it become so universal?

Sondra Bacharach, Associate Professor in the School of History, Philosophy, Political Science & International Relations at Victoria University, will take you on a tour through the Brick Flicks exhibition to explore concepts of LEGO's popularity, relevance, representation of identity and use in art.

This interactive walking talk will examine each of the facets that contribute to the exhibition: examining the preconceptions we have about Museum exhibitions; how LEGO represents gender, race, and culture; and what constitutes art.

It's approachable and fun philosophy that will leave you with a deeper understanding of the way our minds and the world works!

Join us on 28 January to explore the deeper layers of Brick Flicks and discover the building blocks in our minds.
