Artists are increasingly confronting and reshaping ideologies of health, critically tackling illness and impairment in their practice while challenging institutional failures to support multiple abilities. Celebrating the latest in the Documents of Contemporary Art series of anthologies edited by Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz, this event invites artist Khairani Barokka and others to contribute to our thinking about how health intersects with sexuality, ethnicity, gender, class and coloniality. 

In association with Wellcome Collection.
