Disobedient Bodies

Reclaim Your Unruly Beauty

Emma Dabiri

12
An unmissable, radical essay from Emma Dabiri, bestselling author of Don't Touch My Hair and What White People Can Do NextWhat part of your beautiful self were you taught to hate? We spend a lot of time trying to improve our 'defects', according to society's ideals of beauty. But these ideals that are often reductive, tyrannical and commercially entangled, imposed upon us by oppressive systems and further strengthened by our conditioned self-loathing.This book encourages unruliness, exploring the ways in which we can rebel against and subvert the current system. Offering alternative ways of seeing beauty, drawing on other cultures, worldviews, times, and places, as well as looking beyond the capitalist model - to reconnect with our birth right and find the inherent joy in our disobedient bodies.It accompanies The Cult of Beauty, a major exhibition at Wellcome Collection in autumn 2023.
