Event description

Description

The artist duo, FRAUD, will lead a performance-led inquiry into the multiple layers of power and violence that flow through physical and cultural spaces.

The line between living and dying has been blurred through the contradictions produced by capitalism. This force of erasure and how it can divide, heal and dispossess, frames the duo's work, allowing them to rethink such concepts in materially situated modes.

We will begin the journey with the commercial extinction of brown shrimp species of the Thames Estuary, leading onto the social death of shrimp-peeling workers of Tangier’s Special Economic Zones.
