›It ain’t no bad thing to need a safe place to go mad. The problem is that a lot of psychiatric hospitals are more punishment than love… they need some Madlove.‹

Is it possible to go mad in a positive sense? What would be a safe place to do so? And if you could design your own ward, what would it look like? ›Madlove‹ is a long-term project by the artists James Leadbitter and Hannah Hull. Based on their experiences with mental health and the wish to create a location with positive associations for exceptional mental conditions, they have been bringing together people with and without psychological impairments in workshops since 2014 with the aim of building the craziest refuges we can dream of. 

In cooperation with the Utopia Filmfestival.
