Intentions – Strategies – Works is a three-part invesigation commissioned in partnership with Tate Liverpool. The programme seeks to develop strategies for history making in relation to the histories of Left cultural production. Following a series of meetings convened with writer Laura Guy, artist Patrick Staff and researcher Ed Webb-Ingall, Intentions – Strategies – Works will evolve into a new performance.
Emerging from the series of discussion and movement workshops, which explored the issues of creating chronologies or histories of Leftist cultural production in relation to the works in the exhibition alongside the conditions of their presentation within a public institution, the performance will use speech and physical formations to elucidate links between radical histories and their archives and private intimacies and public exhibition.
