China: Birth and Belonging

Performance: Fri 26 Feb, 19.00-21.00
Talks and discussions: Sat 27 Feb, 10.30-17.00

China: Birth and Belonging is s symposium to accompany our current ‘Identity’ exhibition. Chinese ideas of family and the individual differ dramatically from those we see in ‘Identity’. How do these ideas influence an individual’s sense of identity and belonging? By casting our thought to another nation, can we learn anything new about our own?

It kicks off with Friday night performances from Brendan Fan, Yuen Fong Ling and Seaming To.  Saturday’s discussions cover the one child policy, eating and identity, stem cell research, war and art.  Wellcome Collection symposia aren’t just for academics:  they attract an engaged and lively audience from a wide range of backgrounds.
