Motivation: the artist and the psychoanalyst
with Dr. Hanna Segal

The Voicebox
Level 5
Royal Festival Hall
Belvedere Road
London SE1 8XX


Presented by:
ResCen, Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts,Middlesex University, with ResCen Research Associates; Ghislaine Boddington, Shobana Jeyasingh, Richard Layzell, Rosemary Lee, Graeme Miller and Errollyn Wallen

For over three years the ResCen artists have been meeting in closed sessions to discuss the processes that form and inform their work.

This seminar is the first in the series for the academic year 2004/05. In it, the ResCen artists will engage in conversation with Dr Hanna Segal, the eminent psychoanalyst and author who has written extensively, with creativity as one of her key themes.

Together, the Research Associates will explore the impulses that instigate creative work and the ways in which creative energy is sustained over decades of artistic practice. Specific themes will include the artistic endeavour as internal
and external processes, and the artist's relationship to the verbal realm.

The ResCen artists represent decades of knowledge, skills,craft and experience - the motivation which fuels their work is a
vital factor in their practice. Those attending will have an opportunity to participate, enhancing the debate by offering greater breadth of experience.

-- Prof. Christopher Bannerman,
Head of ResCen - Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts, School of Arts
