Organised by Cally Spooner

The third in a series of symposium-like gatherings organised by writer and artist Cally Spooner as part of her Stanley Picker Fellowship at Kingston University, studying the visibility of management and neuropolitics.

Beginning from the concept of the social body as an event and the contemporary demands for such a body to be event-managed, the gathering will venture into the neurological and biological moments in which bodies might become disobedient – sick, stressed and accidentally unruly. The gathering will feature a number of interlocutors, presentations and interventions.

This event is organised by the Serpentine Galleries, booking essential
