events

Culture+Conflict organises panel discussions, seminars and conferences. We also participate in an increasing number of activities managed by other organisations.

Our next event is ‘Climate Control’ in partnership with the Whitechapel Art Gallery on Thursday 26 October 2017. Bookings here: http://www.whitechapelgallery.org/events/climate-control/ What is the relationship between geopolitics, conflict and climate change? Four speakers bring their views, distinct perspectives, and different ways of addressing the complexity of climate change: environmental journalist Fiona Harvey (The Guardian); artist Simon Faithful; Professor of Culture and Climate, Mike Hulme (Kings College London); and artist Jasmijn Visser. Moderated by Michaela Crimmin (Culture+Conflict). This event marks the launch of ‘Conflict Atlas: Geopolitics and Contingencies’, Jasmijn Visser’s addresses the unresolved conflict of the Falklands/Islas Malvinas, and its ongoing ecological and social impact, through texts, maps, photographs and drawings, how world powers shape political and social landscapes. In collaboration with Metahaven and Archive Books. This event is generously supported by Goethe-Institut London.

Please then save the day for ‘Working across Divides’, a one-day symposium on Saturday 4 November, an event to explore projects that suggest small-scale approaches to the politics of separation. Information will be posted soon.
