16 November 2016

Independent curator, Mette Kjærgaard Præst discusses hysteria and how this term has transformed through history. Looking at its different iterations from the wandering womb in ancient Egypt and Greece until today, the talk will touch upon the aestheticised hysteric women in the Salpêtrière hospital, witches, train crashes, the glowing skin of Princess Diana, the tears of President Obama, and maybe even Gary Barlow.
