Please join the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) for their 2016/17 research series. Followed by a reception.
How did the work of artists incarcerated in mental hospitals at the beginning of the 20th century escape confinement, to play an important role in the pre- and post-war artworlds? This lecture will explore the conjuncture of diagnostics, record keeping and philosophical redefintions of art and creativity that temporarily opened a route out of the asylum and into the gallery and art market.
Booking is essential to attend this event.
