Madlove – A Designer Asylum

Speakers: Hannah Hull and the vacuum cleaner
Saturday 11. November, 14:45 – 15:15

Madlove is a project lead by artist’s the vacuum cleaner and Hannah Hull based on our experience of mental health, and our desire to find a positive space to experience mental distress… and enlightenment. The project is bringing together people with and without mental health experiences. The aim is to build the most crazy, bonkers, mental asylum we dare dream of.
