In government parlance, being a citizen means to be recognised as a ‘subject or national’. How does this play out in our everyday relations? What is at stake in re-imagining new forms of citizenship and modes of civic participation?How can the notion of citizenship – in our trans/post-national society – be reconfigured without subjection?

This exhibition centres on the concept of the citizen/citizen-artist/artist-citizento explore the potential for art practices to re-imagine citizenship. It brings together a range of audio-visualand text-based responses with contributions by artists, researchers and students from across and beyond the University. It includes artworks produced by staff and students at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts of Besançon (France) with whom the Politicized Practice/Anarchist Research Groups and the Theatre and Performance Research Group has an ongoing dialogue around themes related to art, performance and political activisms. Join us for an in-conversation Skype event with invited guest artist Tania Bruguera, on Monday 11th June at 1pm in Martin Hall theatre.

Collectively curated by the Politicized Practice/Anarchist/Theatre and Performance Research Groups at Loughborough University. With thanks to the Working Class Movement Library at Salford for the loan of archive material.
