28 September 2013 - 2 November 2014
A programme of exhibitions and events inspired by the work of Norbert Elias (1897-1990) is to be held at the Gasworks in South London. Elias's work on the civilising process examines the changing social practices and structures through which - from the Middle Ages onwards - Europeans came to express and embody there own self-confidence through the notion of civilisation. From September 2013 until November 2014, there will be five exhibitions and a programme of interdisciplinary events based on collaborations with invited artists, designers and researchers to tackle and discuss the relevance of the issues raised by Elias's work for contemporary debates and practices. Visit Gasworks for more details.
