The Art of Protest Open Lecture
Inflatable cobblestones, banner drops, stencil memorials... The Art of Protest will explore how artistic practice is put to use in protests. Drawing from examples around the world, with a focus on the UK, we will look at what happens when studio spaces move into the streets, performance art becomes direct action, and uninvited installations go up in government building and corporate headquarters.
The talk will be followed by a hands-on workshop with Minute Works design studio, where participants can explore tactics and techniques for creating protest art.
Dr. Anna Feigenbaum teaches at Bournemouth University and has had her work exhibited in the Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Parliament and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Minute Works is a graphic design studio specialising in the creation of beautifully crafted, sustainable communication projects for values-led organisations. They regularly work with Greenpeace, the Green Party, HOME, Metal, Omega, Platform, the Public Interest Research Centre and Toxic Remnants of War Project.
Please note the lecture will not be ticketed. However, the workshop will be a free, ticketed event. To book your tickets follow this link.
