Tania Gheerbrant


Over the past two years, French artist Tania Gheerbrant (b. 1990, lives and works in Paris) has been working on a project around the Entendeurs de voix (Hearing Voices) movement. Organized around discussion groups that function as mutual support systems, this movement aims to enable voice-hearers to share their experiences, whilst reflecting on demedicalization and on alternatives to confinement.

Extending this project, Tania Gheerbrant’s Fleurs de l’histoire investigates anti-psychiatric patient collectives from the 1970s, with the aim of shedding light on the systems of oppression that operate in both medical and carceral institutions. They weave an artistic genealogy between the still-active Entendeurs de voix movement and these 1970s collectives.
