Description

Curative Things is a collaborative project organised by the Thing Power Research Group (LAU), Thinking Through Things(Wellcome Trust Funded Project, Durham University), and Fashion Research Network.

This symposium focuses on objects at the intersections between art and fashion, health and medicine. Examples might include clothing, prostheses and other wearables: things that have the potential to restrict, contain, embrace or extend the body; things that we wear and that wear us. We invite abstracts for papers, performances, workshops and other creative activities that focus on one or more ‘things’ as a way of exploring the theme/s of the symposium.

Three thematic panels will centre on:
