Event Details

10:30 - 17:30
Tate Britain
The Clore Auditorium
London SW1P 4RG

This conference rethinks what is meant by ‘critical urbanism’ through a wide range of international artists and theorists whose work is concerned with mapping contemporary city spaces.

Speakers also focus on the politics of representation, history and memory, and what counts as knowledge. In addition, the event explores how people make sense of places through visual and photographic representations, across a variety of global contexts.

This series of talks and presentations can be of interest to a wide audience exploring art, photography, urbanism, social research and cultural activism. Speakers include, Susan Philipsz, Jamila Cooper, Abbas Nokhasteh, Ofri Cnaani, Layla Curtis, Stefano Carnelli, Michelle Henning, Edward Hillel, Claire Holdsworth, and Linda Lai.

Urban Encounters is organised in partnership with Tate, Openvizor, Goldsmiths, University of London, Kingston University, University of West London and the Urban Photographers’ Association.
