UNFIXED is a multiplatform project that explores the elusive “truth” of photography and its relationship to ideas of ethnicity, culture and identity in contemporary art.
UNFIXED Projects invites graduate and end exam students (PhD, MPhil, MA, MFA and 4th year BA or BFAs)in arts theory and practice to participate in the UNFIXED workshop. The workshop will focus on photography in relation to subjects such as culture, identity, migration, diaspora and colonialism. We encourage students whose work and research relate to these subjects and neighboring themes to apply. The workshop will be given by writer, art historian and critic Kobena Mercer (UK), together with all of the artists exhibited in UNFIXED - Charif Benhelima (BE), Otobong Nkanga (FR/NG), Keith Piper (UK), Naro Snackey (NL), Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie (US), Hank Willis Thomas (US) and the curators, Sara Blokland and Asmara Pelupessy. We will use the day for a hands-on discussion, in which the students’ own work as researchers, writers and artists will be viewed, considered and discussed. (The workshop will be in English.)
