“John Berger presents his insights on how people see. Through examples of Art History, Berger shows how our very sense of sight has been transformed. By discovering why this is so, according to Berger, ‘we shall discover something about ourselves’,” Dago Schelin said of this BAFTA award-winning BBC series.

Where art, and its meaning, was once considered to be viewed in one place at one time, it has now “become transmittable. It comes to you,” Berger opines. “It has become information of a sort.” And now, thanks to the internet, John Berger’s Ways Of Seeing comes to you, decades later, beyond perhaps what even he foresaw in 1972.
