Ex Nihilo Session VIII: Bringing the sexy back into magic


Dear all

the time of our next Ex Nihilo, the casual academic talk, is drawing near - it will take place on 31.7.2021, 18:00 CET.

This time, we've decided to name the topic "Bringing the sexy back into magic" (even though you might immediately ask, "did it ever left?"). The persona of the magician has undergone several changes in recent decades. Shifting from the clandestine, seclusive practitioner to the spotlight of interest and presentation. Many musicians, actors, politicians and other public personalities are vocal about their magical practices or beliefs. Mostly thanks to pop culture, there is a strong aesthetic appeal to the practice of magic.
