Talk and discussion with Dr Imogen Tyler, Sociology Senior Lecturer & Leverhulme Fellow, activist group No Borders London, and artists Nada Prlja and Margareta Kern

About

This session takes its cue from the book in preparation by Dr Imogen Tyler and Dr Katarzyna Marciniak, Immigrant Protest: Politics, Aesthetics and Everyday Dissent, which examines the critical relationship between visibility, power, and representation. The event includes a presentation by Dr Tyler, who will examine dissent, resistance, and revolt against the conditions and social attitudes faced by migrants, focusing on the centrality of aesthetics to migrant resistance movements. This is followed by contributions of activist group No Borders London, who have been active in a range of campaigns against deportations of asylum seekers as well as in ‘Justice for Cleaners' campaign; and artist Nada Prlja whose work deals with the complex situations of inequality and injustice in societies. Artist Margareta Kern will also present her current work in production, based on her interviews with female migrant laborers in the late 1960's West-Berlin. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- terms & conditions is a project comprising of a series of events devised by Iniva in collaboration with artist Margareta Kern.
