Not valid as an ID card
In April 2017, we took part in a research trip to Athens, Beirut and Lesbos, organised by the Royal Institute of Art under the title Art and Crisis. Taking this trip as a point of departure, the research project Not valid as an ID card attempts to critically dissect language and representation as systems of both oppression and emancipation. How can cultural practitioners approach contemporary art as a space of expression for unrepresented agents of society, while at the same time challenging established power-knowledge structures?
More information will follow soon.
