Understanding Territoriality Conference in Brighton

On Tuesday 26 May,  join this one-day conference in Brighton about territoriality and its manifestations as a core human behaviour.  The Understanding Territoriality Conference is the first event of Understanding Territoriality: Identity, Place and Possession (TIPP), a two-year Cooperation Project investigating the tensions between the personal, the local and the general, tensions which are at the crux of the debate about identity, the nation state and the European Union. The project is a collaboration between four contemporary art and design organisations: Fabrica (Brighton, UK), Netwerk (Belgium) Cittadellarte (Italy) and Otvorena Soba (Macedonia).

Understanding Territoriality brings together the partner organisations with expert speakers from the arts and humanities, and covers topics such as:

  • Personal Realms: Objects, Identity, Intimacy and Meaning
  • Common Interests: Competition, Co-operation and Trust
  • Power, Representation and the New Demopraxy: reconfiguring relationships between the citizen, the institution, the state and the corporation
  • Re-making Space: Urbanism and Design

Tuesday 26 May, 9.30am-5.30pm
University of Sussex, Brighton
Tickets: £25 including lunch
