Event: Detachment and Empathy in Medicine and Art

Tuesday 2 December 2008, 19.00–21.00
Tate Modern Starr Auditorium
£10 (£8 concessions), booking recommended

Artists and psychiatrists reflect on how they have represented, engaged with and challenged the ‘medical gaze’ in their work. They will explore the ways in which detachment and empathy can be found both in artists’ relationship with their subject and doctors with their patients.
