Interiority: An Exploration of the Inward Gaze

Friday 15 September
The Old Operating Theatre Museum

9a St Thomas St, London, SE1 9RY

Saturday 16 September
The Freud Museum, London

20 Maresfield Gardens, London, NW3 5SX

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).

Prompted by the idea that Shakespeare’s soliloquies may have been influenced by public anatomical dissections in Renaissance London, INTERIORITY brings together artists with speakers from the fields of medicine and health, anatomy, history and cultural theory in three public talks to explore 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, Prof Atau Tanaka, Dr Mark Vernon and Dr Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim.

INTERIORITY is a Centre of the Body, Goldsmiths and Athletes of the Heart event, funded by the Wellcome Trust.
