Distant Animals, StreetLaw Brighton and Art/Law Network at the Tate Exchange ‘Who are we?’ Project

Last Sunday we were very excited to join members of The Hostile Environment Collective for the Tate Exchange ‘Who are we?’ Project Hostile Environment Tour. Liberty, Hunger for Freedom strikers, SOAS Detainee Support, Protest Stencil and other grass roots groups were also there Wednesday 23rd – Sunday 27th May as part of the programme of events.
Artist and maker Distant Animals, StreetLaw Brighton and Art/Law Network came together to present their ‘SLEEP‘ game, which aims to highlight the plight of homelessness.
The Hostile Environment Tour took you around ten key ‘sites’ where the border is enacted in our communities, public and private services. Each site explained how the hostile environment is enforced, and how it makes some people border guards and criminalises others. Walking around the sites aimed to demonstrate the web of immigration controls and surveillance in our daily lives.

The Who Are We? Project at Tate Exchange funded by Counterpoint Arts. The 2018 programme explored the production of people and place with a rich range of connected sub-themes: housing, displacement, memory and migration, movement, politics of language teaching, the design of a hostile environment, rural, regional and urban ecosystems, transformations, food, environmental and racial justice.
