From interrogating Nicolas Bourriaud’s ideas of a new age of the altermodern to the daily life of a political actitivist in the World Bank-backed last dictatorship in Europe -Belarus, You Are Here goes a way to offering a sort of field book for contemporary Europe. A continent where young artists and activists blend forms and travel in their work, living in one country while all the while subtly interrogating their home countries’ traditions and expectations. A generation has come of age in a post- Wall Europe who no longer feel obligated to answer the national questions, but instead answer to their unique personal experience, one of borderless work and travel, mediated by translation and the Internet. Such instances of artistic, intellectual and activist projects are given space in You Are Here, offering the chance to see whether such young practitioners really are writing from a freedom and plurality born in 1989 back into a new, wider and pan-European tradition in 2009.

Aglow was the first in a series of critical material encounters exploring an interdisciplinary approach to materiality, exploring luminescence as an electronic, synthetic and natural phenomenon at the macro and micro scale, as a scientific phenomenon and cultural material. This session was convened by Melanie Jackson and hosted by The Slade Research Centre at Woburn Square and the Material Culture Group, in the Department of Anthropology. This is an inter collegiate group from Birkbeck, Kings and UCL.
