During this pivotal period of political change The Socio-Parasitology entails an exhibition of artworks in response to Hasan’s Socio-Parasitology Manifesto. The ambition of this exhibition is to put into discussion the positive parasite-host relationship, as a means of exercising new methods aimed at finding social change by editing the current pejorative perspective of human bodies behaving parasitic towards each other and new hosting environments. This exhibition aspires to further develop the ethnographic context of this theme – expanding it in an interpersonal work-led narrative as a means of interrogating its existence, usage and value in the current political crisis. The exhibition is in lead up to Brexit and is a polemic act of resistance for positive change and supporting minority groups and communities.
This will take a multi-dimensional format alongside the duration of the show, which includes Early Morning Crits, Weekend Family Workshop, Drop-In sessions and a highly anticipated Curator-Artist Talk.
