Feeling ashamed for not being happier? On an endless quest to transform yourself?

Leading academics Carl Cederström, André Spicer and Renata Salecl gather to explore how wellness has become an unhealthy obsession in western societies, and how living ‘well’ has become synonymous with being morally good.



They will argue that visions of social change have been reduced to dreams of individual transformation, and political debate has been replaced by insipid moralising. By moving from the welfare state to the ‘wellness state’, we undergo a shift in wellbeing as a collective responsibility toward it being an individual choice spearheaded by corporations. And paradoxically, we end up more anxious and unwell as a result.
