The Architecture of Anxiety

Whilst the historic assumption that man builds and woman inhabits shifts almost imperceptibly, artists & feminists must still negotiate the physical, political and personal environments it has engendered. The Architecture of Anxiety employs feminist strategies to explore the psychophysical experience of the uncertainty of space and imagine a new architecture.

The Architecture of Anxiety is an intensive programme of research through practice curated by live art collective Lucky Bert (led by Cherry Truluck and Alberta Jones) and in partnership with Folkestone Fringe. The focal exhibition at 27 Guildhall Street brought together work by artists Sarah Baxter, Nicola Hunter, Alberta Jones, Emily Speed, Lucy Thane, Cherry Truluck and The Folkestone (Summer) School of Economics to explore feminist interactions in space through the various lenses of body politics, mental health, architectural design, food, protest and the economy.
