newwpshivday2Need something to do this Valentine’s Weekend? Try hitting up the Tate Britain for its screening and workshop Zones of Conflict: Transnational Communities.

Anand Patwardhan’s documentary film War and Peace (2002) addresses the subject of peace activism contextualized in the military geopolitical crisis affecting India and Pakistan, while the workshop will consider “how socially-engaged art practices have confronted globalisation’s stateless subjects and transnational social relations”.

This weekend marks the last installation of the ongoing event Zones of Conflict: Rethinking Contemporary Art During Global Crisis. The series brings together artists, curators, architects and art and cultural theorists to discuss the ways in which recent geopolitical crises have changed the face of contemporary art.
