Revolutions: 1989 in 2019
- Arts and Law, Lectures Talks and Workshops, Research
1989 was a year of change. The revolutions in Central and Eastern Europe brought an end to communist rule and the beginning of the end of European division. And yet, thirty years later, Europe seems ever more divided. What can 1989 teach us in 2019? What does it mean to overthrow a dictatorship through popular protest? What is it like for those Central and Eastern Europeans (CEEs) who have since made Britain their home?
Revolutions explores these questions through the lens of artistic practice. It brings together two AHRC-funded projects: In-Between Spaces, which explores barriers to inclusion and representation experienced by CEE artists living in the UK; and Testimonies in Practice, which has collected short testimonies from CEEs living in the UK. The work of Revolutions can be seen in multiple locations throughout the week commencing 7 October.
