Art and Politics – A Thread

27 March 2020

6–8.30pm | Free Entry


Following the UK Government’s move yesterday from “contain” to “delay” phase in its handling of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, John Hansard Gallery regrets to announce that this event has been postponed. Please see our social media channels for future updates and the latest information.


Is art political? If so, how? Join the Museum of Dissent collective for a practical workshop that aims to interpret the connections between art, cultural practice and subversion.

Showcasing art and artists’ ability to make profound comments on socio-political issues through various mediums and reflecting on institutional stances on all this, the workshop aims to critically reflect on the power, role and value of artistic and cultural practice in resistance.

The Museum of Dissent was founded by practising curators, Lisa Kennedy, Donata Miller and Emma MacNicol, who together host an array of interests (including Socially Engaged Practice, Black Histories and African Art) and collectively work on creating a fairer and more equal cultural sector.

Interruptions/Disruptions is co-organised by Dr Eleanor K. Jones, Dr Priti Mishra and Dr Sarah Hayden, and funded by the Public Engagement with Research Unit at the University of Southampton.
