Passagens Session 5: Hands Off Our Revolution
This event is open to all UAL students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, UAL staff, as well as a wider community of invited alumni, practitioners and researchers in this field.

Hands Off Our Revolution, a new global coalition of artists and cultural practitioners, is dedicated to affirming the radical nature of art.
 
Join Passagen's for the first 'Hands Off Our Revolution' London event in which artists, cultural practitioners and public intellectuals discuss the ways art can counter the rising rhetoric of right-wing populism and fascism, and its increasingly stark expressions of xenophobia, racism, sexism, homophobia, and unapologetic intolerance.

Contributors: Help us identify the scope of what the cultural resistance to populism might be, the particular forms and public spaces in which it can and should occur, and how best to support cultural practitioners in their political resistance now!

About Passagens:
With the aim of interrogating dialogues about a cross-disciplinary subject Passagens (a Postgraduate Community Reading Group) is a response to increased anxiety amongst students at UAL, to address the meaning and the issues surrounding the act of migration. Passagens takes its meaning from the linguistic variables of the Portuguese ‘passagem’, which implies a number of different journeys: from one period in life to another, from one country, language culture and conviction to another, from being home to being a foreigner, from student to professional, child to teenager to adult, but also from one geological epoch to another, and allows for diverse perspectives to interweave.

This event is the fifth in a series of events, organised by Lucy Orta, Professor of Art and the Environment and member of Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF), in collaboration with CSF Associate Curator Camilla Palestra, and is supported by the UAL Postgraduate Community.
