Counterpoints Arts presents dis/placed

dis/placed

dis/placed is a week-long progamme of events 
in response to global demographic shifts and unprecedented levels of human
 displacement.

 

Featuring over 40 artists working across visual art, film,
 photography, Live Art, performance and design, dis/placed considers the experiences of people who are ‘staying 
temporarily’, sometimes for generations, 
in stateless limbos, detention centres, refugee camps or urban settlements
– living within a country’s borders yet 
outside its political, legal and civic life.

dis/placed invites audiences to explore the exhibition and participate in a daily programme of learning labs, workshops, performances, interventions and screenings.

LADA is delighted to be collaborating with Counterpoints Arts on the Live Art elements of dis/placed including contributions by sean burn, Natasha Davis, Richard Dedomenici, There There and the Monica Ross Action Group.
