Indivicracy – the First Gathering this event is now finished
Meet the Resident: Alexa Pollmann
Alexa Pollman’s Indivicracy project imagines a future in which migration is the norm and governments are no longer tied to territory. Join her first Gathering to find out more and see a rare performance of the mysterious ‘Dance of the Peregrine’.
Alexa Pollmann’s design-fiction 'Indivicracy' imagines a radically transformed version of democracy for a socially-networked future and presents a vision of what the culture of a newly emerged, non-territorial society might be.
This ‘Gathering’ mixes performance and discussion with the chance to join in with the communal ‘Dance of the Peregrine’ – the national dance which unites the geographically scattered citizens of the Indivicracy. You’ll have the option of wearing one of the national colours and role-playing your part in this vision of the future.
You’ll also be able to learn from the dancers and about the performances in the exhibition and if you want, some of the movements yourself. This event also offers the chance to learn about Alexa’s collaborative installation which suggests unsettlement as an increasingly plausible form of existence and showcases motivations for migration, challenging its often negative connotations.
Please note that this event will be filmed. If you do not wish for footage of yourselves to be shown, this can be arranged by informing Design Museum staff on the day and in person.
Free as part of ticketed entry to the museum. This event is capacity limited so please book to reserve a spot. The event should last about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
