Photographer Suki Mok will be joined in conversation by Gavin Grindon and Carlos Gigoux to discuss the politics of art and its impact in society.
Suki Mok’s immersive images of protests quietly insist on revealling the ideas and motivations behind the civil disobedience organisation that became known as the Umbrella Movement. Tonight’s talk will expand on the themes and ideas that have influenced Suki Mok through conversation with Gavin Grindon (School of Philosophy and Art History, University of Essex) whose interests include activist art and institutional critique and its futures, and Carlos Gigoux (Centre of Migration Studies, University of Essex) whose research includes the role of social movements in advancing migrants rights.
The talk is chaired by Kayo Lu, co-curator of (In)tension: One Country, Two Systems.
Refreshments will be served.
Admission is free.
