Re-Imagining Citizenship Exhibition 2018


Collectively curated by the Politicized Practice/Anarchist/Theatre and Performance Research Groups based at Loughborough University
Martin Hall Exhibition Space – Loughborough University
30 May – 16 July 2018

It brings together a range of audio-visual and text-based responses with contributions by artists, researchers and students from across and beyond the University. It 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.
