Build, break or recreate? With TENT and Tate's Young Peoples Programme

Join young makers, thinkers and producers from London and Rotterdam in a radical conversation on power

Can we re-claim and re-create institutionally problematic and exclusive spaces? Or must we break down existing power structures and start again from the ground up? What would it mean to build new structures? Would they be any fairer? Can power ever be equally shared?

Join young makers, thinkers and producers from London and Rotterdam as they take over Tate Exchange space with an interactive installation and a night of reflection and reimagination. You are invited to engage in open, radical conversation and to challenge personal and spatial power structures from the perspective of two of the most culturally diverse cities in Europe.

Interact physically, creatively and thoughtfully with an interactive installation made of recycled materials, typical of London life, produced by Resolve Collective. Expect to be immersed in a soundscape accompanied by graphic productions, as you encounter photography, film and visual arts from marginalised voices across both cities. Plus chillout and delve deeper in space for reading, viewing video, and networking.

What is the importance of language? What does anglophone privilege mean? What does the notion of home mean to you?

On Friday 15 November, join Tate Young People’s Programmes and TENT Rotterdam for a live evening exploring dominant and non-dominant culture through a music, visuals, a performative making workshop, a poetic conversation and an open mic all co-curated and led by young artists from both London and Rotterdam.

About TENT x Tate

Build, Break or Re-create? is a celebration of an ongoing partnership between Tate Young People’s Programmes and TENT Rotterdam. It informally marks the launch of the ‘Where Does Culture Happen?’ publication, produced as a result of a series of exchanges, discussions and workshops between young makers and cultural producers between London and Rotterdam in 2016 and 2017.
