Archaeology G6 Lecture Theatre, Institute of Archaeology, University College London, 31-34 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PY
From the IHA Website:
for Human Activities has located its settlement in the Democratic Republic of
the Congo, eight hundred kilometres upstream from Kinshasa on the river Congo.
Here, in one of the most burdened yet promising regions in the world, the
Institute for Human Activities will launch its five-year Gentrification Program
and, in an in vitro testing ground, mobilize the modalities of art production.
Martens will give a presentation and discuss the project with TJ Demos, Anthony Downey, and Sarah James.
The event is free and open to all.
