Click to enlargeAD CAPUT CAPITIS: THE LOST SKULLS OF SWEDENBORG
Oct 18 - 21, 2017
Swedenborg’s skull has long been an object of mystery, intrigue and misappropriation. Stolen twice from his coffin in London, it was later replaced with a ‘ringer’. Organized in conjunction with the Bloomsbury Festival ad caput capitis: the lost skulls of Swedenborg offers an opportunity to explore rare and previously unseen items from the Swedenborg Archive that bear witness to this uncommon story. There will also be new works by the artist Jeremy Millar. To accompany the exhibition London writer Iain Sinclair and author Colin Dickey will each speak of their own work, both literary and academic, in relation to the lost skulls Swedenborg.
Tickets are FREE but please book a place for the talk here: lostskullsofswedenborg.eventbrite.co.uk
