Lizzie Masterton - ASMR: Tools for Tenderness

  • Braithwaite Hall Katharine Street Croydon, England, CR0 1NX United Kingdom (map)

ASMR: Tools for Tenderness is a participatory talk exploring the physiological and psychological tingling sensation of ASMR, its potential for healing fractures in the relationship between the mind and body, as well as promoting a sense of wellbeing.

The talk will explore: the emotional and biocapital labour of feminine presenting people within ASMR videos, the construction of gender, race, and the posthuman embodied subject within ASMR, and the potential for ASMR to be used as a therapeutic tool for those coping with depression, anxiety, depersonalisation, PTSD and other mental health problems.

Whilst this lecture hopes to introduce the audience to the sensual world of ASMR, it is also to be enjoyed as a live ASMR experience in itself.

Attend this event with a TF18 Day seven ticket or a TF18 Festival pass. Day tickets will be available on the door for £12.
