Land │Labour │Capital
Future State, in partnership with Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) and Goldsmiths, University of London, is hosting Land │Labour │Capital, an interdisciplinary and collaborative symposium at LCGA on 26-28 September. The symposium 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.
