Ways of Dying
This is Marc Quinn's work Template For My Future Plastic Surgery (1992). It is used by the Tate to represent a half-day symposium, Ways of Dying, which will be held at Tate Modern on Saturday 14th October from 1400-1930. It will explore the relationship between life and death in contemporary cultures, drawing on the fields of art, philosophy, law, medicine, political theory, gender and cultural studies, biotechnology and environmental sciences. The program shows a top class field of speakers and papers. Oh, and there are drinks and music afterwards. You can find out more and book tickets here.
