George Vasey in conversation with Harold Offeh

Wellcome Collection hosted an online discussion between George Vasey and Harold Offeh to accompany ‘The Joy Inside Our Tears’, Offeh’s installation as part of the On Happiness season. They discussed the inspiration behind the piece, including Harold’s interest in collective dance in relation to traumatic histories, from queer communities of colour in 1990s danceathons to medieval dancing plagues. They also talked about the context of making art about collective joy during a national lockdown in 2020.
