How does trauma affect the brain, the body, the national psyche, or all three?

How do buildings, bodies, artworks and stories record the traumas of our past?

How do we bounce back after a trauma, and how is our understanding of trauma’s lasting effect changing?

 

William Utermohlen's late self-portraits bring his testimony to this exhibit.

A complematary workshop uses these self-portraits as a model

for processing self-awareness following trauma.
