The art of Edward McLaughlin

The art of Edward McLaughlin vividly confronts common assumptions about dementia and those who live with it. It upturns stereotypes and forces those who view it to question and reassess many long-held preconceptions. For the last few years Edward has worked with film-maker Christeen Winford and, latterly, Jennifer Souter to bring his work and philosophy to a wider audience. This collaboration has resulted in several exhibitions, short films and a
book.

During their presentation, Edward, Christeen and Jennifer discussed this work and answered questions about the ambition behind some of their film footage and how they’ve tried to fulfil it through words and images.
