We've been lucky enough to read a few preview pages of a new book by Alain de Botton and John Armstrong Art as Therapy which which is due out this October. If, like us, some of your favourite things are Art, Therapy and the thoughts of Alain de Botton then you'll be please to know that you can find them all in one place at one of The School of Life's wonderful Sunday Sermons.
From the School of Life Website:
We often hear that art is meant to be very important; but we’re seldom told exactly why.
Alain de Botton believes art can help us with our most intimate and ordinary dilemmas: Why is my work not more satisfying? Why do other people seem to have a more glamorous life? How can I improve my relationships? Why is politics so depressing?
In his sunday sermon he'll introduce a new method of interpreting art: art as a form of therapy, providing powerful solutions to many of life’s dilemmas.
He'll also be signing copies of his new book written in collaboration with John Armstrong Art as Therapy (Phaidon, 2013).
