Who are the Splacists?

30th November, 5:45pm at MADE,

7 Newhall Square, Birmingham.


Who are the Splacists? will introduce the context for and development of the Splacist manifesto as well as report findings from the What are the Splacists? activities conducted earlier in the day. There will also be an opportunity to experience work developed by a collaboration between artists Nikki Pugh and Hannah Nicklin. This work has been commissioned by MADE as part of Learning Spaces

Living Places 2 and represents the first indirect response to the manifesto. This FREE evening event is your chance to experience it firsthand and be a part of this new artist-led experience.

Splacism is a contemporary mode of practice proposed by Paul Conneally. A new set of ideologies defined by Hannah Nicklin and Nikki Pugh. A hop, skip and a jump away from psychogeography and the works of the situationist international. Think space, place and splice. Developed empirically by whoever’s interested.

(Refreshments will be provided. Please wear suitable clothing, as some activities may be outdoors)

We will own this city.

We will take it back.

We will link and shift: across time, space, people, places and processes.

We will weave throughout the fabric of people’s lives.

We will unpick it.

We will affect and be affected.

We will glory in the moment, the collage, the marking and then passing on.

We reject your shopping centre, your pavement, your cultural quarter.

We will undermine pre-defined spaces. We reject them.

We will reclaim the city, not for you, but with you.

We are you.
