FREE /// All welcome

Threefold is a series of panels presented as performative gatherings (playful, possibly political) in parallel with the MUMA exhibition Shapes of Knowledge.

Fictitious Commodity?

This gathering is a conversation on the political economy and ecology of our Higher Education and arts sectors with a focus on the objects, modalities and impacts of our traditional and/or creative practices within their wider publics or environments. Our panellists will present short, performative and playful responses to the key question: are the products of our practices shaped as fictitious commodities?

Host: James Oliver

Illustrator: Oslo Davis
