The People’s History – The Revolution Will Be Ceramicised
Presentation by Carrie Reichardt (UK), followed by Q&A
From community projects in Argentina and Chile to mosaicing her own house in Chiswick, London (which stands as a monument to family and friends including human right’s activists The Angola Three), Carrie Reichardt discusses the importance of narrative-based art in highlighting individual and collective stories that have otherwise been whitewashed from history, and the powerful role that heritage-based art and objects can play in establishing and maintaining civic agency and identity.
Carrie Reichardt is a self-titled ‘craftivist’ whose work often blurs the boundaries between craft and activism. She has had a career spanning many media, including film, performance and sculpture but is perhaps best known as a ceramicist and mosaicist working internationally on large-scale public murals.
