> DESCRIPTION

Over three days during Frieze Art Fair Week, the Serpentine Gallery stages the Memory Marathon, the seventh annual festival of ideas inspired by the annual Pavilion commission. This multi-disciplinary event will feature a wide range of participants, including leading artists, architects, film-makers, musicians, scientists, theorists and writers in a continuous, performative programme of explorations, musical and theatrical performances, film screenings, discussions and experiments.

The three-day event begins on Friday 12 October with a thrilling five-hour performance by acclaimed Lebanese sound artist Tarek Atoui, who together with fourteen internationally renowned musicians will take audiences on a mesmerising journey through Tarab and classical Arab music recorded from the early 20th century onwards.

Among more than 60 participants confirmed so far are former REM vocalist Michael Stipe; filmmakers Amos Gitaiand David Lynch, who will present a new film; historians Jay Winter and Donald Sassoon, who together will explore the theme of ‘War Memory’; celebrated neuroscientist Israel Rosenfield, who will introduce ‘The Problem of Memory’ with writer John Hull, robotics expert Luc Steels and World Memory Champion Ed Cooke; artists Olivier Castel and Ed Atkins on ‘Deception and Self-Deception’; scent expert Sissel Tolaas on ‘Sensory Memory’. Other contributors include Harvard astronomy professor Dimitar Sasselov; The screening of Ways of Listening, a portrait of John Berger in the form of a compelling document of a weekend spent in the company of close friend Tilda Swinton; writer Douglas Coupland; poet John Giorno; writer and cultural historian Marina Warner; author and technologist China Miéville; artists Gilbert & George; architects Jacques Herzog, Pierre de Meuron andFumihiko Maki; composer Gavin Bryars with poet and painter Etel Adnan.
