‘States of being at the Borders of Humanity’

SPACE gallery, 131 Mare St, London E8 3RH

6th September 2017

The last workshop, held in East London, will develop new methodological modes of collaborative response which draw on the creative energies of interdisciplinary working, including new creative works which can offer counter narratives to the ‘necropolitical’ trends. In questioning ‘What does it mean to be human in the context of necropolitics?’, this session explores how contemporary ‘humanitarian’ discourses engage with these issues.

The final workshop considers what it means to be human in the context of necropolitics. It focuses in particular on the role of aesthetic and artistic responses.
