Where were you in 2012? This online event is curated by Sonia Boué and invites contributors to generate a dialogue around issues of othering, and the sensationalising of neurology in curatorial practice.

Running through this event are questions about self-translation in creative practice, and the assumption of speech. Sonia is concerned with themes of authorship and ownership, and the impact of accessible digital technology in creating and disseminating content.
