Serpentine Gallery Sweatshops - On Engagements, On Failures, On Fictions, On Attitudes

Serpentine Gallery Sweatshops is a programme of seminars convened by Lisa Le Feuvre and Edgar Schmitz to consider ideas surrounding politics and art. The programme, which began in November 2007, investigates ‘Engagements, Failures, Fictions and Attitudes’ in conversations with thinkers, artists, writers and curators that open up a debate around contemporary cultural issues, creating a place for public research outside of an academic framework.
