Who are we? A week of participatory installations, conversations, and learning labs

Who Are We? at Tate

Switch House, Level 5, Tate Modern, Bankside, London, SE1 9TG

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 - 12:00 to Sunday, March 19, 2017 - 18:00

Who Are We? is a free 6-day cross-platform event curated by Tate Exchange Associates: Counterpoints Arts, The Open University, University of Warwick and Loughborough University.

It 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.

FASS staff involved with the programming include Giota Alevizou,  Agnes CzajkaSara de Jong,  Umut Erel and Lisa Pilgram.

Spanning the visual arts, film, photography, design, architecture, the spoken and written word and live art, and looking at art and its importance to society, Who Are We? reflects on identity, belonging, migration and citizenship through arts and audience participation. The week of activity has been specifically designed for Tate Exchange and focuses around an ethos of collaboration, innovation, conversation, exchange and learning.

Artists and practitioners from countries including England, Scotland, Poland, Finland, Iraq, Italy, Germany, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo, Slovenia, Romania, Greece, Spain, Israel, USA and South Africa contribute to the debate through a week long public programme of activities, installations and events to which the public are invited to engage and participate.  The work centres on these questions:

  • What is becoming of Europe and the UK?
  • What are we forgetting, and with what consequences?
  • How does our colonial past connect to today's migratory movements?
  • Can the creative uses of technologies, logistics, visual art and performances show us a glimpse of another Europe, another ‘We’?
