September 23, 2013 § Leave a comment
Future State, in partnership with Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) and Goldsmiths, University of London, is an interdisciplinary and collaborative conference at LCGA on 26-28 September and is taking place during Labour and Lockout, an exhibition to mark the centenary of the 1913 Dublin Lockout, a key moment in Ireland’s industrial history when employers refused to recognize workers in an attempt to break worker solidarity and the trade union movement.
Land│Labour│Capital will reflect on the relevance of 1913 for the contemporary moment and seek, through dialogue, to foreground radical and alternative narratives for future history-making.
Invited speakers include Dr. Mark Curran, Dr Angela Dimitrakaki, Professor Nicholas Mirzoeff and Dr. Deirdre O’Mahony among a host of other academic and artist participants.
The full programme including screenings, events and presentations can be found here.
