ART AND POLITICS IN THE CITY
At a time of heightened repression and censorship, Karachi LaJamia organized 10 site-specific sessions engaging with the pressing concerns of the artist’s relationship to politics. These sessions created a nomadic and non-hierarchical space for shared learning, where our open sessions shifted between different public spaces to allow relative freedom to engage in political critique and collectively explore possibilities for the politicisation of art in the institution and the city. It was an experiment in formulating new languages, new methodologies, new spaces and networks of solidarity, and new alliances within, and beyond, the university.
These sessions were held from May to August 2015.
