The Madness of History: Situating Marat Sade Bohnice in Time and Space

Audain Gallery at SFU is hosting this panel discussion featuring Marina Marrow, Jan Pfeiffer and Jerry Zaslove, moderated by Samir Gandesha this Wednesday, March 5th at 6:00pm.

Considering the complex and far-reaching implications of the exhibition of Marat Sade Bohnice in the unique context of Vancouver, the panel will address topics including Peter Weiss’ life and practice, the Foucauldian themes of madness and the carceral, the histories of de-institutionalization and mental health reform in British Columbia and elsewhere, shifting notions of human rights and citizenship, and the critical value of cultural intervention and social engagement in institutional programming.

The Audain Gallery is located at SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings Street, Vancouver BC.
