Who Are We? 2019 will reflect back on previous programmes in 2017 and 2018 focusing on ‘exchange’ and ‘production’ to guide us seamlessly into the 2019 thematic of ‘movement’.
Move across Tate Exchange through commissioned installations, symposia, and participatory workshops exploring living archives, the power of popular culture and crossing borders; migration, mobility and citizenship; and the politics of cultural policy, language diversity and translation.
Take part in Learning Labs focusing on the increasing restrictions on artists’ rights and freedom of expression, the political potential of the neighbourhood-led co-operative commission, and the local/global re-building of arts/culture and civic infrastructures.
Throughout the week, we’ll choreograph conversations with artists, cultural activists, academics and cultural hubs across the UK – with guest partners and participants from Beirut, Berlin, Cuba, Casablanca, Dublin, Istanbul and Madrid – to explore the comparative processes of cultural democracy and new models for artistic production and collaborative, socially engaged practice.
All events are free and open to the public.
We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Tate Neighbours; and partnering with the British Council, Plymouth College of Art, English PEN, Index on Censorship, PEN International and the design and branding agency, TEMPLO.
