Exhibiting Madness in Museums

While much has been written on the history of psychiatry, remarkably little has been written about psychiatric collections or curating. Exhibiting Madness in Museums offers a comparative history of independent and institutional collections of psychiatric objects in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom. Leading scholars in the field investigate collectors, collections, their display, and the reactions to exhibitions of the history of insanity. Linked to the study of medical museums this work broadens the study of the history of psychiatry by investigating the significance and importance of the role of twentieth-century psychiatric communities in the preservation, interpretation and representation of the history of mental health through the practice of collecting. In remembering the asylum and its different communities in the twentieth century, individuals who lived and worked inside an institution have struggled to preserve the physical character of their world. This collection of essays considers the way that collections of objects from the former psychiatric institution have played a role in constructions of its history. It historicises the very act of collecting, and also examines ethical problems and practices which arise from these activities for curators and exhibitions.

Simon Brewster is a doomed man. If he doesn't change his ways, he'll never see middle, let alone old age. He knows that most people generally don't drink white cider for breakfast, don't use the aisle of Tesco as a toilet, and don't steal from their family and friends. At school, the career adviser never suggested stealing Edam balls and legs of lamb as a job, and his doctor has never prescribed crack cocaine or heroin. Simon still does these things though, and the worst part is, he doesn't know any more than you do why he continues doing it. He's seen his parents on their knees, crying, begging him to stop; he's been arrested by his former best mate; he's been hospitalized, all as a result of drug and alcohol abuse. It's just not enough to make him stop. Simon lies to everyone, including himself. The truth is, he has no more of an idea why he does the things he does than you do. What he needs is a way out. But if such a thing exists, Simon hasn't had much luck finding it. He's powerless; his life is unmanageable to the point of insanity. This is the story of Simon Brewster's last year using class "A" drugs. Join him as he crashes his way through police cells, courtrooms, and display cabinets. One way or another, Simon will stop using drugs. But can he overcome his addictions before his addictions destroy him? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ian Barker.
