Flat Time House presents for the first time in London a project by Danish artist Stine Marie Jacobsen. Law Shifters engages young citizens in the vicinity of FTHo, Peckham and Camberwell, in law and democracy by giving them the chance to act as both judges and lawmakers.


What would your verdict be to real court cases, and how would you rewrite the laws in your country so that they would be fairer? 

The Law Shifters project makes young people discuss their political opinions, ethical views and sense of justice as they re-judge real court cases and write new law proposals that reflect the reality that they are part of today. At FTHo Jacobsen, with experienced lawyer Sarah Andrew, will be working with teenagers to apply this methodology to UK criminal law, the stop and search law (Sus Law) and racial profiling.

Law Shifters is curated in collaboration with independent curator Lotte Juul Petersen, working with artist and Lawyer Sarah Andrew and Art Assassins, the South London Gallery's young people's programme. Law Shifters is the main cultural project during the Danish chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe November 2017 to May 2018. It is supported with funding from the Danish Arts Foundation.
