The Architecture of Anxiety


27th October - 5th November 2017

27 Guildhall Street, Folkestone CT20 1EB


Whilst the historic assumption that man builds and woman inhabits is gradually eroded, artists & feminists must still negotiate the physical, political and personal environments it has engendered. “The Architecture of Anxiety” will employ feminist strategies to explore the psychophysical experience of the uncertainty of space and imagine a new architecture.

“The Architecture of Anxiety” is an intensive programme of research through practice curated by live art collective Lucky Bert. The focal exhibition at 27 Guildhall Street will bring together work by artists Sarah Baxter, Katharine Fry, Nicola Hunter, Alberta Jones, Emily Speed, Lucy Thane, Cherry Truluck and The Folkestone (Summer) School of Economics to explore feminist interactions in space through the various lenses of body politics, mental health, architectural design, food, protest and the economy.
