A panel discussion with artists Rebecca Jagoe, Jade Montserrat and Marianna Simnett with co-curator of FIGURE/S: drawing after Bellmer Michael Newman.
This discussion explores how Hans Bellmer and contemporary artists use drawing and writing to explore ideas around the transformation of the human to the non-human - be that becoming object, plant or a non-human creature. The discussion will consider this transformation as both reductive and destructive of the human – the costs of fascism, slavery, colonialism, racism, rape culture and populism to the body – and as celebratory and redemptive – a different conception of our relationship with animals, the natural world and commodities that can positively transform the human.
This discussion will be hosted live on Zoom 6 - 7:30 pm GMT, Thursday 23rd September, with live subtitles provided by Stagetext.
