The Terminal is a durational live art project that references the holding areas at border junctions across the world. With reference to Marc Augé’s notion of the ‘non-space’, it examines areas of constraints, limbo and in-betweenness and their impact on the processes of art-making.
The Terminal unfolds between and within a three-storey warehouse in Bermondsey and a hostel in London Bridge, and their immediate surrounds. For 54 hours, artists from different cultural backgrounds and practices will live and make art and performance together, under restrained circumstances and constant surveillance.
From Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October 2013, ten live performance artists from all over the world will check in, handing over their identity papers and communication devices for the entire 54 hours of the project.
Under these conditions the artists will live and be together, and make work in response to their situation as well as the broader themes in the project.
Alongside artists’ performances, The Terminal offers a programm of associated talks and screenings.
