Abstract or Description

an exploration of the inward gaze

Prompted by the idea that Shakespeare's soliloquies may have been influenced by public anatomical dissections in Renaissance London, INTERIORITY brings together artists with influential figures in medicine and anatomy, history, curation, philosophy, visual and cultural theory in three public talks to discuss the relationship between body and mind: how we imagine and experience our interior selves, and how this affects our way of expression in the world.

Speakers include Dr Jorella Andrews, Annie Cattrell, Joanna Ebenstein, Jack Klaff, Prof Roger Kneebone, Prof Jonathan Sawday, Jenny Sealey MBE, Prof Susan Standring, Suba Subramaniam, Chitra Sundaram, Dr Mark Vernon and Dr Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim.

Co-curated by Prof Anna Furse (The Centre of the Body, Goldsmiths, University of London/Athletes of the Heart) and Dawn Kemp (Director of Museums and Archives, The Royal College of Surgeons of England).

Funded by the Wellcome Trust. Produced by Athletes of the Heart.
