To accompany her installation, The Military Industrial Complex, Bonnie Camplin is joined in conversation by artist and researcher John Cussans and David Luke, Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Greenwich.
The Military Industrial Complex was a live work by Bonnie Camplin at the South London Gallery that took the form of a study room exploring what ‘consensus reality’ is and how it is formed. Drawing from an interdisciplinary array of materials and theories, from physics to philosophy, psychology, witchcraft, quantum theory and warfare, The Military Industrial Complex examined the anxieties caused by the categorisation of lived experiences as valid or deviant, questioning how the actual locus of madness is located and identified.
