Tate Modern Workshop

Self-impressions With the Institute of Philosophy, University of London

© Loup Blaster

Take part in hands-on experiments and explore how self-images and other marks we leave in the world change who we are and how we feel

We are used to capturing our images on camera and displaying them for others to see, either to make an impression on someone or to make them understand how we feel. Explore how the images of ourselves that we choose to produce and share, shape our sense of self.

Specially curated by philosophers and neuroscientists from the University of London, our workshops at Tate Exchange will introduce you to fascinating areas of research around identity. Discover more about your sense of self, and how it is constantly being modelled and reproduced.

This event is programmed by the Institute of Philosophy, University of London, a Tate Exchange Associate.
