Documents of Socially Engaged Art

10 December 2021 - 23 January 2022

This multi-disciplinary and co-curated exhibition presents photographic, video and research documentation of the socially-engaged research projects carried out by the Horizon 2020 Project AMASS (Acting on the Margins: Arts as Social Sculpture).

The Project has seen over 25 researched and documented projects taking place during 2021, with 8 European partners producing a number of projects each.

The exhibition will present research findings from these projects, but will also reveal the human element behind them; the time that communities and artists spend working together, and the depth of understanding and empathy that emerges through socially-engaged art. Some works of art created by participants will also be shown within the exhibition. A seminar discussing the exhibition topics will take place in the first weeks of the exhibition.

AMASS has received funding from the European Unionís Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 870621.

A consortium of 8 European partners has conducted extensive research on socially engaged arts projects, including over 30 documented projects forming part of this Horizon 2020 research study. This AMASS seminar aims to present research and creative outcomes of these many research projects, exploring questions related to issues like the documentation and communication of participatory practices, creative engagement and elderly persons, citizenship, pedagogies and museum education. Seminar speakers will present findings from AMASS research, covering disciplines from analogue photography to theatre and participant groups from rural communities, to young people and the elderly.
