How do we undertake anti-racist visual activism in difficult times? New forms of mediated racism, often directed at migrants, have linked to older prejudices and revived historical nostalgia for the British Empire. Liberation Lab engages with this situation by transnational political projects in alternative with anti-racist Atlantic-world politics, histories of race and empire, and visual activist practice. We’ll visit key alternative archive spaces in London like the Stuart Hall Memorial Library, the Black Cultural Archives and the Bishopsgate Institute. We’ll meet with activists and artists to discuss how anti-racism and non-hierarchical learning are being thought and worked. We’ll walk through the city to see how gentrification is resegregating space and overwriting histories. And we’ll get outside the London “bubble” to see other parts of England.
