Saturday 23 February 2008, 10.30–13.30
Saturday 8 March 2008, 10.30–13.30

This workshop, conducted by artist activist the vacuum cleaner will concentrate on the body as a site for political resistance taking as inspiration Doris Salcedo's Shibboleth. Issues such as the ability of art to address the long legacy of racism and colonialism underlying the modern world will be tested with physical and conceptual tools during the workshop.

The vacuum cleaner is a cultural resistance collective pursuing radical social and ecological change. By working in-between the poetics of art and the pragmatics of activism the vacuum cleaner attempts to disrupt concentrations of power and reverse our journey towards ecological collapse.
