Disobedience Makes History: Tate Modern

In art|BOOK on January 2, 2010 at 11:43 pm

This January, London’s Tate Modern will be playing host to Disobedience Makes History, a workshop exploring the history of creative disobedience.  The event will be led by the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination and will focus on how the 20th century has provoked society to fight against the law with creative means such as art.

Considering that today’s society is full of economic and environmental concern, Disobedience Makes History stresses the point that these weaknesses should result in a creative resistance by the population.  The repression of the thoughts and fears of the worlds people should be turned around into artistic expression and this is the function artists should take.

The workshop will consist on discussions about the implementation of creative disobedience and its future.

Disobedience Makes History will be at Tate Modern on Sat 23 & 30 Jan from 10.30-17.30 in East Room, Level 7.

At Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall Bridge this Saturday, there will be a repeat of Rob Priutt’s Christmas and Kwanzaa version of a ‘Flea Market’.

Originally, the event was held in 1999 at Gavin Brown’s Passerby gallery, including artists such as Elizabeth Peyton.  For the Tate Modern, Priutt will be working with a new group of London-based artists as well a selection of his original participants. 

The event, which coincides with the Pop Life: Art in a Material World (where Priutt also appears) will consist of market stalls with a range of festive products from holiday cards and stockings to old 12″s.

Rob Priutt’s Flea Market is running on Sat 12 Dec. 11.00-22.00 and Sun 13 Dec. 11.00-18.00
