Contested Territories


Repeats every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 01/06/2013

This new exhibition explores the interaction of the city and the social order in an age of dissensus, which Philosopher Jacques Rancire considers "the putting of two worlds
into one and the same world.

The rationale behind the exhibition is that the disruption of the social order finds its locus in the city: the urban space as a key feature of modern society is where manifestations of contention take place, thus establishing contested territories.

Contested Territories brings together a diverse group of artists from across the globe whose output is informed by or is a response to discord, both historical and contemporary. In this sense, the exhibition encapsulates the lived experience and the research on pressing topics carried out by the participating artists.
