Youtopia: Visions of the Past, Present and Future

A woman sits alone on the left hand side of the painting. Her knees, covered in a long blue skirt, are drawn up to her stomach, and she has a sorrowful expression on her face. It is not obvious where she is; the tiled wall suggests an underground station.

About the event

It is five hundred years after Sir Thomas More coined the term ‘utopia’, and almost one hundred and fifty years since the first use of the twin word ‘dystopia’. Now Bethlem Hospital’s museum curators hold up a mirror to today’s society by putting a first edition of More’s ‘Utopia’ on display, alongside rarely-seen works from the Museum’s reserve collection which communicate a vision of the best – and worst – of all possible worlds.
