Re-Imagining Citizenship

An exhibition collectively curated by the Politicized Practice/Anarchist/Theatre and Performance Research Groups at Loughborough University.

In government parlance, being a citizen means to be recognised as a ‘subject or national’. What is at stake in re-imagining new forms of citizenship and modes of civic participation? How can the notion of citizenship – in our trans/post-national society – be reconfigured without subjection?

This exhibition centres on the concept of the citizen-artist/artist-citizen to explore the potential for art practices to re-imagine citizenship. It brings together a range of audio-visual and text-based responses with contributions by artists and researchers 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. The exhibition will feature items from the Working Class Movement Library, Salford archive collection.

Exhibition dates: Thu 31 May – Sat 14 July (Mon-Fri only)
Exhibition times: 12pm-2pm weekdays only during the Arts Festival (6-15 June) and by appointment at other times. To make an appointment please email luarts@lboro.ac.uk or telephone 01509 222948.
