Motions of this Kind: Propositions and Problems of Belatedness is an exhibition commissioning the new works and developing ongoing projects by 11 artists from, or working in, the Philippines.

Each artist examines transnational and temporal themes in their practice. The exhibition explores the historical, contemporary and global forces that the Philippines, as an island nation, faces. At the centre of each piece of work is the theme of 'belatedness'. The project underscores the way time has been used as a weapon of power, a tool of everyday resistance and a way of dominating the marginalised.

The tour will be led by Rafael Schacter, a Teaching Fellow in Anthropology at UCL, who has co-curated the exhibition.
