Interview | ADEC 37th Annual Conference on Dying, Death and Bereavement in a Multicultural World (San Antonio)

Gloria Horsley interviews memory artist, Nancy Gershman at the 2015 ADEC (Association for Death Education and Counseling) Conference held in San Antonio, Texas.  In the video, Gershman relates a story about a striking experience she had while teaching a master class in “Constructing a New Memory” to psychologists during her two-month artist-in-residency in Moscow, Russia.

Faced with the incontrovertible proof that Russians dearly hold on to their suffering, Gershman still posed this question to her students: “If you have a choice between releasing cortisol or serotonin into your bloodstream, which one would it be?”
