Experimental Research in Spaces - Beware of Greeks Bearing Gifts

  • Emily Hesse (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


With invited thinkers including Greek artist and revolutionary Theodora Polenta, and artists Emily Hesse and Isabel Lima we look at the question of art as Trojan Horse. How far can we use the metaphor of the Trojan Horse to specifically look at artists and art of conquest, exile and refuge. We bring together in the space a wide range of refugee community organisations and agencies. We think about music, making and social transformation and integration. Isabel will specifically talk about the 40 foot high Trojan Horse that she actually built with refugee communities.
