The Road Bloc Collective are a group of artists and activists who explore how power inscribes itself in urban space through architecture and images.
As parts of Bahrain transform into territories of dissent, where roundabouts become “squares” and spaces for political speech and action, graffiti is visible like never before and road blocks and marches are part of everyday life – we see the scenography and spectacle of revolution.
Featuring photography, sound works and installation, Road Block enacts the ongoing battle for space and claims for “the right to the city”, that provoke and challenge us to reconsider the relationship that we have to space and power.
Join the curators, researchers and artists that have developed the exhibition on a tour of this enthralling exhibition.
A private viewing will be held on Thursday July 9th 2015 at 6-8pm for supporters and journalists.
