Kreider + O‘Leary: Ungovernable Spaces

Royal Academy of Arts: Borders Lecture Series
Monday 29 April 2019 / 6.30 — 8pm
Benjamin West Lecture Theatre, Burlington Gardens, RA

Poet and architect duo, Kreider + O‘Leary, take a closer look at boundaries and borderlands across the world in an exploration of how we ought to live together. Kreider + O’Leary’s performance lecture uses spoken word, video and live projected drawing to critically examine the boundaries and borderlands of some of their recent projects.

We will move across continents, from the Open City in Chile and the route of Gandhi’s infamous Salt March in India, to the contested spaces of the ‘peace walls’ in Northern Ireland and across migrant routes through the island of Lesvos in Greece. Journey from spaces of exclusion and explore the ‘outsider’ as much as the outside as we pose the political question, “How should we live together?”
