Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

In a moment of global movement, connection and dis-connection of people across national borders, this event at Tate Modern asks: Who are ‘we’? And who gets to decide?




Programmed by amongst others CCIG's Umut Erel and Agnes Czajka, Who Are We? offers a week of drop-in activity, dialogue, artist-led workshops, debate and disruption at the Tate Modern as part of Tate Exchange, a new programme that explores how art makes a difference in society.

Spanning the visual arts, film, photography, design, architecture, the spoken and written word, plus live art and music, the events offer an exciting space for collaboration and encounter, asking what it means to belong across and within borders. Groups often kept apart by binaries – migrants versus 'natives', academics versus artists and experts versus the public – will come together to interrogate their ways of relating to each other.

The event is programmed and supported by Tate Exchange Associates: Counterpoints Arts, Loughborough, Open and Warwick Universities. For more details, please visit the Tate Modern website or read the full programme.

You can also read an interview with Nele Vos whose installation, The Citizenshop, forms part of the programme. CCIG member Agnes Czajka talks to Nele about the issues she hopes it will raise and the relationship between citizenship, migration and neoliberal economics.
