Led by Katrina Mitcheson, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, UWE
The second of four events exploring the relationship between art, aesthetics and contemporary materialism. This session focuses on how visual art can be used to help understand, and theorise the self. Join Katrina Mitcheson to question the adequacy of a narrative understanding of the self that draws on the paradigm of the novel, and how the materiality of visual art can help us explore the corporeality of the self.
Organised in partnership with the Philosophy Programme and Social Sciences in the City, University of the West of England.
Reading material will be provided.

When & Where
Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. Based in Bristol, UK, it is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. A vibrant hub for production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion.
Our vision is to position art as central to society, which we do in two ways: by offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events; and by fostering a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers. Spike Island collaborates with local and regional partners as well as with international institutions, museums and universities.
