Ever Present Past

Over the past year a substantial programme of research was undertaken, with artists Mark Dion, Claire Barclay, Anne Elliot, Laura Aldridge, Laura Spring, Alex Wilde and writer Nicola White finding and developing ways to engage with the history of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital and the individuals connected to it. Patients, staff, managers, archivists and local communities have all contributed to the dialogue; some became researchers, others characters in stories, consultants offering advice or co-creators making work. Their collated experiences now offer us new perspectives of the Hospital’s history.
