Performance and Moving Image Works by Linder

As part of Linderism, a number of performance and film works by Linder were on display across the galleries and the Edlis Neeson Research Space.

The Six Senses: a series of talks

Explore the sensory dimensions of Linder’s work through these multimedia discussions. Since closure we have moved the series online, and are adding new contributions regularly.

Extra Sensory Perception

Frank Bowles, Archivist at Cambridge University Library, pulls out material Linder examined in the archives of the Society for Psychical Research, and discusses the influence of extrasensory perception on her work.

Smell

Lizzie Marx, History of Art PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge, explores the role of smell in the history and experience of art by way of Linder, Jim Ede and seventeenth-century Dutch art.

The Lower Senses

Mark Bradley, Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Associate Professor of Ancient History at the University of Nottingham, and Linder’s academic consultant on the history of the senses, uses the ‘lower senses’: smell, taste and touch to draw connections between classical bodies and Linder’s photomontage.
