The Unexpected Beautiful Phrase

CAMPUS Fugitive is the second in a series of events exploring ideas around education and critical pedagogies.

Through a series of performative gestures, this event will consider how the fugitive learner navigates institutional space and refuses legibility. Featuring performance, reading, installation, sound and video works, this event asks: how can we be fugitive within formal educational models? How can illegibility generate new and disruptive practices?

This day-long programme includes responses from the artists Rosa Johan Uddoh, Christopher Kirubi, Raju Rage, Holly Pester, Jules Sturm, Dorine van Meel, Department for International Dance Development (DIDD), and a film screening by Denise Ferreira da Silva and Arjuna Neuman.

CAMPUS Fugitive is curated by Pablo Luis Álvarez, Giulia Antonioli, Teal Baskerville, Chloe Carroll, Emily Hale and Laura Luempert as part of the MA Curating Contemporary Art Programme Graduate Projects 2019, Royal College of Art, London.

Free. Booking recommended.
