In this talk/workshop specific examples of Edvard Munch’s artwork are considered in relation to ideas of dementia and alienation, where aging is pictured (in the bourgeois imagination) as the great dread of our age, a kind of rotting or parade of horror – a state where the story or narrative of our ‘self’ (self-esteem/self-actualization) is dissolved into an undifferentiated limbo of the use-less body. These ideas will be explored with reference to Karl Marx and Julia Kristeva (amongst others).
