About this event

An exhibition collectively curated by the Politicized Practice/Anarchist/Theatre and Performance Research Groups that will form part of Loughborough University Arts Festival.

Opening from 4pm Wednesday 30th May 2018 until Saturday 14th July.

In government parlance, being a citizen means to be recognised as a ‘subject or national’. What is at stake in re-imagining new forms of citizenship and modes of civic participation? How can the notion of citizenship - in our trans/post-national society - be reconfigured without subjection? 

This exhibition centres on the concept of the citizen-artist/artist-citizen to explore the potential for art practices to re-imagine citizenship. It brings together a range of audio-visual and text-based responses with contributions by artists and researchers from across and beyond the University. 

The exhibition includes artworks produced by staff and students at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts of Besançon (France) with whom the Politicized Practice/Anarchist Research Groups and the Theatre and Performance Research Group has an ongoing dialogue around themes related to art, performance and political activisms.
 
There will also be a themed in-conversation Skype event with invited guest artist Tania Bruguera, on Monday 12th June at 1pm.
