HOOKED will be Science Gallery London’s debut exhibition at their new permanent home in London Bridge, opening September 21st 2018.
The exhibition and events programme will delve into the complex world of addiction and recovery. From gambling to gaming and smartphones to social media, HOOKED questions what makes us as humans vulnerable to addiction and interrogate the underlying factors and routes to recovery.
Science Gallery London invites you to challenge the stigmas associated with addiction, consider addiction as a health issue we are all susceptible to, and explore how recovery takes many forms.
How and why do we become addicted? What are the processes of individual and societal recovery? How can we protect ourselves and people living with addiction from harm? And does our consumerist society have a hand in feeding addiction?
Developed in association with people who have a lived experience of addiction HOOKED features established and up-and-coming artists and photographers from across the globe, including Rachel Maclean’s Feed Me. The dynamic events programme will continue the conversations sparked by the artworks on display in the exhibition.
Full events programme and full list of artworks coming soon.
