Extravagant Bodies: Extravagant Age

Inspiring old age − body and mind on the fringes of social norms

Monday 2 June 2014
Pinter Studio, Arts 1 Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End
6pm. Free, no booking required

Don’t miss this one off presentation of materials from the Extravagant Age exhibition in Zagreb (2013) and Belgrade (2014) and a book launch for the Extravagant Age catalogue hosted by Olga Majcen and Suncica Ostoic of Kontejner in Zagreb and Milica Pekic from Belgrade.

Curated and produced by Kontejner, Extravagant Bodies is an international art festival that has been taking place since 2007 dealing with social determination of the borders between the normal and the pathological, be they concerned with corporeality, appearance, behaviour, sexuality or life style. In its first version, the festival dealt with physical disability, in the second with mental and psychological health, and in the third with old age, or the individual experiences and social implications of what is dubbed the third age. 

LADA is a curatorial partner on Extravagant Bodies and the Extravagant Age catalogue will be available to buy on Unbound.
