Anthony Schrag, artist of Zimbabwean origin with multiple citizenships, is walking this summer from Huntly, in the north of Scotland, to the Venice Biennial. Through discussion he will be putting his privileged journey into perspective, based on ethical and philosophical grounds.

About

Freedom of movement, or the right to travel is a human right that many of us in our times of ubiquitous travel take for granted. At the same time, this fundamental right to mobility is denied to many people across the globe, not only within their own country, but between states. Through discussion we will put this journey into perspective based on philosophical grounds such as:

  • the common right of movement existing prior to the advent of nation states
  • ethics of universalism
  • notions of the benefits to both immigrants and receiving countries
  • the thought of a common ownership of the world
  • the idea of comity

Joining the discussion among others is human rights journalist Alastair Sloan and artist Maya Youssef. Chaired by Manick Govinda from Artsadmin and visiting artist campaigner for the Manifesto Club.
