Following an Open Call three artist researchers will work alongside academics from Humanities, Engineering and Social Sciences to develop projects that critically examine counter-terrorism security measures in Birmingham and experiment with alternative notions of safety.
The three selected artist researchers will work alongside academics to develop ideas for individual or collaborative projects dealing with the theme. There is no fixed format, and artists join an interdisciplinary team of researchers working towards a public presentation in September 2020. The form this takes will be identified in conversation with the selected practitioners.
This project is funded by a grant from The University of Birmingham’s Institute of Global Innovation and Institute of Advance Studies.
