As Brexit debates and the Hostile Environment have shown, the impulse to erect borders against racialised populations is a powerful force in contemporary politics. To counter its devastating effects and communicate with a wide range of audiences, researchers and activists cannot appeal exclusively to causal arguments. This workshop will discuss artistic engagements with those subject to racial injustice and consider how their creativity can be mobilised to advance the theory of free movement.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)

The workshop will include presentations and conversations on the art interventions done by Holbourne, Vitale and Ryde with migrants and refugee populations.
