Detachment and empathy in medicine and art

2 December | 7-9pm | £10 (£8 conc)
Starr Auditorium, Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

How do different artists represent, challenge, and engage with the ‘’medical gaze’? What can medicine and the arts learn from each other about how each identifies, deconstructs and then reassembles the objects or subjects of its attention? Do artists and doctors face similar dilemmas in patrolling the ethical dimensions of their work?
