Beautiful Distress


Ship of Fools: Madness, Art & Recovery is a workshop by Mitchel Breed, inspired by Hieronymus Bosch. Participants share experiences, insights and make collages, reflecting on how social systems influence our mental health. This is how we follow in Bosch's footsteps by depicting the collective madness of our society.
