Transitional States: Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science

1st February 2018 - 30th November 2018


Transitional States: Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science delivers an international programme that uses art and public debates to raise awareness about the important impact hormone therapies can have. It explores the theme of hormone use and abuse, both in the past and in the present.


The Transitional States: Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science programme includes a range of public discussions in each city the exhibition visits; Lincoln and London in the UK; Barcelona in Spain; and Bologna in Italy.

Each location will host three free public discussions, where a panel containing specialists from a range of disciplines, including artists, authors, feminist activists, historians, legal experts, LGBT activists, medical professionals, philosophers, and sociologists will explore a variety of topics such as hormone uses and transsexuality, non-binary genders, and intersexuality; hormones and women’s health, birth control, fertility, menopause; hormones, the pharmaceutical industry and sexuality.
