Talk Real presents ‘Talk Real – Art Real’, a series of episodes about artistic projects and social practices from grassroots movements that aim to counteract the dominant discourses of crisis and threat in the so-called “refugee crisis”. In the second episode of the series, Talk Real travels to Madrid in the context of TRANSEUROPA 2017, to meet some of the artists and speakers that participated in this edition of the Festival and analyse the local context in the city of Madrid.
How are the local institutions giving responses to the block of the national government to accept refugees in the country? How are art and artists changing perspectives on migration in the city? What other initiatives are helping to shift discourses and narratives in migration?
A debate with Oliver Ressler (artist), Rasha Shaaban (curator), Lucila Rodriguez Alarcon (director of PorCausa). Moderated by Margarita Tsomou
