Of the public lectures so far, I've found Andrew Hurle's to be the most engaging. His talk revolved around his creative work studying currency. However he spent more of the lecture presenting the findings of his research: from references to the period of German hyperinflation, through to the imagery Carl Barks worked into his Scrooge McDuck illustrations.
Hurle had an advantage over Kerstin Hacker and Judy Annear, in that while he was still an "academic" he was also an artist. Both Annear and Hacker gave talks that didn't venture too far beyond chronologies, stating facts rather then offering much to reflect on.
