The 28th State: European Borders in an Age of Anxiety

‘The 28th State,’ seeks to explore how cultural practitioners in Europe are engaging with the idea of borders – both literally and metaphorically. What is the role of art in framing visions of contemporary / future Europe? How are practitioners engaging with the idea of borders when much of contemporary practice is peripatetic? What do terms like ‘cross-cultural’ or ‘trans-national’ mean now? How do Diasporic experiences affect the Europe we are creating?

‘The 28th State ‘ is a practice–based symposium, placing artistic practice at the heart of the discussion, featuring speakers from across the EU.
