'Selfies’ (or self-taken photographs) are now said to make up 2% of all the images available across the world wide web. Author and journalist Benjamin Law joins us to consider the rise of the selfie online and to ask the question – have we become a society of narcissists? Then be sure to see the beautiful Theatre of dreams, theatre of play exhibition before it closes this weekend and the pieces are returned to Japan. There will be a guided tour inside the exhibition at 7.15pm.
