Upcoming Event! Materials of Madness, June 23rd.

1 Jun


Our next event on June 23rd seeks to explore the materialities of mental illness. The event features David Cronenberg’s psychological thriller Spider (2002), staring Ralph Fiennes and Miranda Richardson. The film reveals the intricate and confusing webs of bodies, objects and place which can be symptomatic of schizophrenia, blurring the line between fact and fiction and shattering both mind and body.

The event will include short talks and a panel discussion including Dr. Andrea Sabbadini, a practising psychoanalyst who is also Director of the European Psychoanalytic Film Festival, Prof Steve Pile, professor of Human Geography at the Open University and co-editor of Psychoanalytic Geographies (2014), Dr Felicity Callard (Durham), Reader in Social Science and Medical Humanities and Director of Hubbub (The Hub at Wellcome Collection), and Michael J. Flexer, PhD Candidate at the Leeds University Centre for Medical Humanities, studying cross-disciplinary representations of schizophrenia.

The event is £5 on the door and begins at 6.30

The venue is:

Jetlag Bar, 125 Cleveland Street,

W1T 6QB London, United Kingdom

    This event will be looking at Madness and the social construction of madness. It looks a great event with brilliant speakers. Our feature film is David Cronenberg’s Spider (2002) featuring Ralph Fiennes and Miranda Richardson.

    Only £5 – should be a great evening. Do join us if you can – full details below.
