Glasgow international

Dr Elsa Richardson, Conal McStravick, and Shireen Taylor

Exquisite Corpse Roundtable Event


Developed in collaboration with Learning in a Public Medium, this event, chaired by Dr Elsa Richardson, will discuss the themes in Douglas Morland’s new film installation, For Matthew, exploring the competing journalistic, legal, medical and criminal discourses concerning the body at the time and in the present day. The event will take the opportunity to discuss these themes through alternative source material, particularly exploring how artists have established critical modes of reinstrumentalising discourses of the body in response to the women’s movement, the AIDS crisis and LGBTQIA rights.

Conal McStravick – ‘Archives Untitled: Staging the body and sense experience as resistance in the queer, feminist and AIDS activist archive.’

Shireen Taylor – ‘A Possibly Fictional Account of a Negotiation Gone Wrong’.
