Books of Blood: Objects Lost and Found @BeingHumanFest

This is the second event that OGOM are involved in for Being Human 2017 . It introduces the offshoot ‘Books of Blood’ which will be featuring in 2018

Title: Books of Blood: Objects Lost and Found

Date: 23rd November 2017

This event sees mysterious, unique, and bloody objects ‘lost’ in the Science Museum’s archives uncovered in a way that enables the curious history of each piece, and its relationship to blood and the body, to be sensationally recovered or ‘found’. This ‘show and tell’ workshop allows for writing and drawing activities, based on Clive Barker’s notion of the body as a ‘book of blood’ that can be ‘read’. Our participants’ responses to the curious objects (in words and/or images) will form diverse narratives on ‘being human’ that will be preserved in the public space for others to enjoy.

This ‘Show and Tell’ workshop is facilitated by Dr John Rimmer and Dr Sam George. 

Further details will be revealed!
