Routes OR Roots? workshop

Saturday 27 October

1:00pm – 2:00pm

Phoenix Brighton, BN2 9NB

Free and open to all

Routes OR Roots​?​ invites participants to take part in a two-hour long workshop delivered by Revolv Collective. The activities will encompass notions of belonging and the self, participants are asked to contribute to the workshop with personal objects, possessions and ​stories in order to form a narrative of personal and collective diaspora. The workshop is open to people from any age and background.

Influenced by writings by Stuart Hall, this workshop aims to stimulate participants to reflect on their identities and becoming through revisiting photographs, objects and memories. Presenting personal memorabilia to the gallery space will form an opportunity for reflection, discussion and appropriation. The personal, generational or family migration from continents, countries or cities becomes the core of constructing one’s identity. A visual and spoken dialogue will form between artists and participants as a result of a collective investigation of their routes and roots. The photographic outcomes produced by individuals taking part will form a collective response to what constitutes identity and home.

To take part you are required to bring a collection of photographs, objects and stories, which remind you of home. Reserve a free ticket.

Revolv Collective invites you to The Collective’s Hub, part of Brighton Photo Fringe taking place at Phoenix Brighton, 10-14 Waterloo Place, Brighton BN2 9NB from Saturday 30th September to Sunday 28th October 2018. Open daily between Wednesday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

4uzhbina is a photographic installation created collaboratively by the artists and founders of Revolv Collective Krasimira Butseva and Lina Ivanova specifically for Brighton Photo Fringe 2018. The word 4uzhbina describes a non-existent place, an illusory location, which cannot be found on any map, nevertheless it could be easily accessed by anybody. It is simply an invention of the tongue, existing only between the spoken and written Bulgarian language. The term contains simultaneously the essence of a no-man’s land and a dolce vita.
