* Open to UAL students and staff *


Laura Malacart uses art practice to engage on contemporary debates and the production of socio-political identities. Language and communication become the territory of the enquiry that focuses on a notion of voice conceived as embodied and simultaneously as emblematic of political agency (‘to have a voice’). In this sense the work gravitates towards interactions at the junction of personal, legal, institutional languages and processes that produce othering: from here the marginal is used to challenge mainstream stances.

Laura Malacart will introduce a series of works within a two-part presentation. The first session will include three projects that focus on the politics of the voice using translation and mistranslation (Voicings) and a cross-cultural analysis of a ‘non-verbal’ voice (Onomatopoeia). The second part will focus on The Little Book of Answers a current and ongoing project focusing on language and the UK citizenship test that launched as a participatory installation at Tate Modern in July 2015.


Lecture Theatre B, London College of Communication.
