Corruption in public life is pernicious, but in creative activity it can be an essential tool of inquiry and challenging continuities and conventional wisdom.

Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Gower Street, London, WC1H 0AY

In part 1 of this event, Greg Dart, Anita Berlin and Richard Wentworth discussed the corrupting but mind-expanding effects of social interaction – from financial transactions to therapeutic interactions, and the ongoing interpenetration between ourselves and our physical environment.

Part 2 speakers will include the distinguished solicitor Geoffrey Bindman and artist and war crimes prosecutor Jason File, who will trace the consequences of corruption in public life, professional ethics and art.

Please join us in the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre on Feb 28 from 6.30-8pm – and for a drink with the speakers afterwards.

Thinkspace is a new forum for cross-disciplinary discussion and debate at UCL curated by Jeremy Melvin. Events are free and open to members of the public.
