Tania Bruguera in conversation with sociologist Saskia Sassen to reflect upon Bruguera’s ongoing research project Immigrant Movement International (IMI) in the context of her residency at the South London Gallery. IMI is an ongoing, artist-initiated, socio-political movement that aims to engage different communities in order to examine growing concerns about the political representation and conditions facing immigrants.

This public talk brings together one of Cuba’s most outspoken artist-activists and the pre-eminent scholar of urban migration to address issues of power, protest, and the global street.

The event is organised in collaboration with Theatrum Mundi and LSE Cities as part of Theatrum Mundi’s Designing Politics project.

Tania Bruguera’s talk and residency are part of the current exhibition Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today the second exhibition of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative. With thanks to Latin Elephant for their community outreach.
