A talk by OLIVER RESSLER for 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture, held at Tate Britain on 8 March 2019
Oliver Ressler is an artist from Austria who produces projects in public space, installations and films focused on issues spanning economics, democracy, migration, global warming, forms of resistance and social alternatives. Ressler’s films have been screened as part of social movements, in art institutions and at film festivals internationally.
The 4Cs events (UK) were an RCA/The Showroom/Tate Britain partnership, co-funded by the EU and the RCA, and part of the ongoing 4Cs research programme. They discussed to what extent can art affect change when addressing issues of migration, displacement, and access - a public discussion exploring the capacity of artists and arts institutions to intervene in the current geopolitical climate. The events were curated by Elvira Dyangani Ose (The Showroom) with Michaela Crimmin (Curating Contemporary Art, School of Humanities, RCA), and Lily Hall (The Showroom).
