Site member Barry Watt will be giving a talk on the relationship between housing and mental health issues at the PEER Gallery n Hoxton, London. He will be discussing the work of RD Laing and Lacan with respect to the notion of ‘foreclosure’, understood both as the psychological mechanism generative of psychosis, as well as ‘foreclosure’ as the legal mechanism that allows for the repossession of homes. He will be addressing how the social, legal and psychological processes relate to one another and what the social consequences are for communities being ‘foreclosed upon’ by the processes of gentrification in London.
There will be a Q & A after. The event is free.
