LONDON | A long list of all the odd fears you can think of (including fear of space between words).

An account about a patient that believed that everything and everyone around him was the product of his imagination and inner visions, hence he could walk through walls.

A black and white short film surrounding incoherent interactions between a patient and his psychiatrist that left you with more questions than answers.

These are some of the things that you will encounter at the Wellcome Collection’s current exhibition, Bedlam: The Asylum and Beyond. The exhibition follows the rise and fall of the mental asylum and explore how it has shaped the complex landscape of mental health today. It is an invitation to re-imagine the institution, informed by the experiences of the patients, doctors, artists and reformers who inhabited the asylum or created alternatives to it.

We visited the other day and found it to be utterly fascinating, and highly recommend a visit.
