In 2017, One Tenth Human collaborated with an extraordinary range of artists and scientists.

The result was a Wellcome Collection Spectacular at the Collection’s building in central London, for one night only.

The night featured an eclectic mix of performance, installations, games and discussions, 

celebrating those who resist, re-write and reimagine masculinity.

As part of the event, One Tenth Human’s artistic director, Sarah Punshon collaborated with theatre-maker Bob Karper, games designer Mink Ette and neuroeconomist Michael Naef. Together they created The Testosterone Games, exploding assumptions about the classic male hormone. 


The evening also featured talks and events by campaigner Jess Day, self-proclaimed “sissy” artist Nando Messias, performance artist Lois Weaver, Ben Hurst from the GREAT Men Initiative, interdisciplinary artists Raju Rage and Noa Carvajal, and psychologists Brendan Gough

and Liam Satchell.
