Art, Memory and Autobiography: Tracey Emin, Christopher Bollas and Gillian Slovo

Lisa Appignanesi, writer, critic and author of The Memory Man, leads a new series of discussions on the subject of Art and Memory.

The series begins with a discussion of the links between creativity and autobiography, and the role of subjectivity and personal histories in constructing art. The panel features the artist Tracey Emin whose work is frequently overtly confessional and informed by events from her life, the psychoanalyst Christopher Bollas, and the writer Gillian Slovo, author of Every Secret Thing: My Family, My Country.
