GOMA Talks returned during ‘Sugar Spin’ for a discussion on pleasure, gratification and meaning in art and life, across two lively events.
In the final session ‘Guilty pleasure’ hosted by Paul Barclay, presenter of ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas, guests pondered the question: can self-indulgence be good for us?
