Art has a vital role to play in understanding exclusion, stigmatisation and violence. This showcase presents the work of four artist/researchers collaborations at King’s College London; between a poet, a visual artist, an actor and playwright, an animation artist, and four social scientists working on questions of exclusion, stigmatisation, marginalisation, conflict and violence in the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy (SSPP).
The evening includes a panel discussion and Q&A with the below collaborators who will share their work, methods and explorations.
- Nadirah- Dr Negar Elodie Behzadi, Department of International Development and animation artist Kate Jessop
- Poetic explorations of contemporary nationalism - Dr Pablo De Orellana, Department of war Studies, and poet Mariah Whelan.
- Undiscernible- Dr Henry Redwood, Department of War Studies, and artist Vladimir Miladinović.
- The Right to Be Believed - Prof Cathy McIlwaine , Department of Geography and actor, playwright and director, Gaël Le Cornec
The VEM+ approach collaborates with artists in understanding exclusion in an organic and cumulative manner, where the four specific art-scholarly collaborations refer to a set of signposts and occasions for exchange, which includes a full free, public events programme running from 2 October- 7 November.
About the Visual Embodied Methodologies Network (VEM).
The VEM network based within the Faculty of Social Sciences & Public Policy at King's College London aims to create spaces of knowledge-exchange and research excellence around visual, embodied and art-based methodologies within, across and beyond Social Sciences. We believe that in using these methodologies lies the potential for co-produced forms of knowledge, opening possibilities to explore otherwise difficult to articulate issues, on a more equal basis.
