The Museum of Emotion at Hayward Gallery

Key Words:

Kader Attia’s first UK survey exhibition, The Museum of Emotion, traces several strands of the artist’s work from the past two decades.

In this exhibition at Hayward Gallery, Attia transforms detailed research into compelling works of art, and at the same time probes the ways in which the museum itself might be transformed into a forum for emotional response, capable of eliciting, exploring and even harnessing strongly held feelings of anger, sorrow, joy and grief.

Get a first look at some of the remarkable works which make up this exhibition in our walk-through video.

I’m critiquing those social sciences that claim to control and understand the world better than other ways of thinking, just by classifying it.
