Bearing Chronic Pain: What Can Art Offer?

Tutkimustuotos: LehtiartikkeliArticleScientific


Chronic pain is a notion created within biomedicine that reduces it to a biological process—dismissing the cultural, social, economic, political, and technological relations that shape it. As might be expected, this standpoint has not proven fruitful for its bearers or society at large. Bear in mind that chronic pain differs from a general understanding of pain because it is not merely a physical experience but has an all-encompassing sensory and emotional effect, as well as long-term transformations in the intellectual and agential capacities of the ones that bear it. Through the generationally and formally distinct artworks of Frida Kahlo and Eugene Lee, this paper explores the potential of artistic expressions in revising deeper cognitive aspects of chronic pain to challenge, diagnose and comprehend chronic pain.
