Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain (London, Spring 2013)
The understanding of human thought, emotion, behaviour and expression are common to both neuroscience – the study of the brain and the nervous system – and to many artists working across visual arts, music, theatre, performance and film. Wonder brings together the Wellcome Trust and the Barbican for the first time – two cutting-edge organisations from both fields creating a rich season of events that explores and is inspired by where art and neuroscience collide.
Highlights include a music inspired performance lecture by Marcus du Sautoy; Ruby Wax giving a personal insight into her journey from the heights of fame to depression; a film season exploring mental health on the big screen; Salon a Parisian theatrical 19th century styled event that allows you to debate the big topics of 21st century; a science and art inspired Barbican Weekender – and a feast of other events that invite you to think, to explore and to wonder.
