Big Ideas: Katherine Angel

27 October | 7pm | £5

 A writer whose work spans psychology, philosophy and literature, Katherine Angel is a foremost voice on sexuality and desire. 

For this latest talk in our Big Ideas series, Angel responds to the themes of our new exhibition Moving Bodies, Moving Images. She will discuss how our bodies move in often unexpected ways, often in spite of ourselves – in excitement, in distress, in protest. Angel will explore some of the ways that psychoanalysis has thought about these moving bodies, and the quarrelsome but generative relationship between psychoanalysis and feminism in relation to them. 

Following Angel’s talk, there will also be a chance for audience questions and contributions to the discussion. 

This event is part of our public programme related to Moving Bodies, Moving Images.
