Catch Your Breath @ City Hall, London

Wed 23 Oct @ 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Free

Breathing isn’t just a bodily function. It allows us to speak, laugh, and sing. It connects us to the outside world. It reflects our state of mind and can be consciously controlled. Breath has inspired art and literature. For many, it has a spiritual significance. The personal and cultural meaning of breath goes beyond the simple act of keeping us alive. 

Catch Your Breath explores the Life of Breath research project, jointly led by Durham University and the University of Bristol. Bringing together medical history, philosophy, art, music, and literature, the exhibition discovers new ways of thinking about breath and breathlessness and their relationship to both illness and wellbeing. 

This free pop-up exhibition will be on display at this location on Wednesday 23 October 2019 from 9am to 6pm.
