Theatrum Mundi event explores migration and the politics of urban space

5 September 2016

In a recent event organised by Theatrum Mundi, artist Tania Bruguera was in conversation with urban sociologist Saskia Sassen to reflect upon Bruguera’s ongoing research project Immigrant Movement International in the context of her residency at the South London Gallery. The discussion of IMI, which aims to engage different communities in order to examine growing concerns about the political representation and conditions facing immigrants, also inspired an article by Will Jennings in The Quietus addressing “the immigrant, their acceptance and role in society and how their privileged position can be a force for good, change and urban strength.” The podcast of Theatrum Mundi’s event can be found here.
