Hysteria and Art: Traumatic Coincidences

Toynbee Studios

14 January 2017


PS/Y is working towards Hysteria, a multi-disciplinary arts programme that will explore the intersection between arts and mental health with a focus on how psychological trauma is experienced as physical symptoms. The programme will take place across a range of venues and institutions in London during autumn 2017. The project explores hysteria from different points of view. In this symposium we will share the research done in collaboration with artists, scientists, academics, and clinicians towards the coming Hysteria 2017 programme.

This symposium presents research and work in progress by Prof. S P Sashidharan, Larry Achiampong, Prof. Sander L Gilman, Candoco Dance Company with Farah Saleh and Prof. Victoria Tischler, Cally Spooner with Dr. Isabel Valli, Florence Peake, Jocelyn Pook with Dr. St├ęphanie Courtade and Melanie Pappenheim, and Cara Tolmie.
