Notes On Protesting
January 18 at Farsta Centrum shopping centre, 4.30pm
January 19 at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm
Peter Liversidge’s proposal Notes On Protesting unfolds from the concept of freedom of speech and the right to make ones voice heard, at a time when the free word is both challenged and threatened, in parts of Europe as well as the rest of the world.
During the fall of 2018, the artist has organised workshops around these issues, together with 110 students from Farsta Primary School and the Adolf Fredriks music classes in Farsta. Collaboratively, they have produced banderoles, placards and protest songs.
On January 19th, the artist will together with the students perform a protest rally at Bonniers Konsthall, expressing the children’s view on the world they live in. The performance will also be enacted for the public at the shopping centre Farsta Centrum, on January 18th at 4.30 pm.
Notes On Protesting was originally enacted in London in 2014, in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery. The exhibition presents documentation from Liversidge’s work with the children in London as well as in Farsta.
With special thanks to students and teachers of Farsta Primary School and the Adolf Fredriks music classes in Farsta.
