The 28th State: European Borders in an Age of Anxiety
Saturday 24 October 2009, 10.00 - 18.00
The 28th State,' seeks to explore how cultural practitioners in Europe are engaging with the idea of borders both literally and metaphorically. What is the role of art in framing visions of contemporary / future Europe? How are practitioners engaging with the idea of borders when much of contemporary practice is peripatetic? What do terms like âcross-cultural' or âtrans-national' mean now? How will Diasporic experiences affect the Europe we are creating?
This one-day, practice-led conference aims to explore these key ideas through presentations, conversations and interventions by a range of artists, designers and thinkers from different parts of the EU. It will encourage dialogue and debate, as well as encouraging new thinking around one of the most pressing issues facing contemporary Europe.
The 28th State: European borders in an Age of Anxiety' is organised as part of Chelsea Programme's âBorderline' season, in partnership with Tate Britain, and with the support of City Inn Westminster
