Who are the Splacists?

Join MADE at 5:45pm on Wednesday 30th November for this FREE evening event open to all.

Who are the Splacists? will introduce the context for and development of the Splacist manifesto as well as report findings from the What are the Splacists? activities conducted earlier in the day. There will also be an opportunity to experience work developed by a collaboration between artists Nikki Pugh and Hannah Nicklin. This work has been commissioned by MADE as part of Learning Spaces Living Places 2 and represents the first indirect response to the manifesto. This FREE evening event is your chance to experience it first-hand and be a part of this new artist-led experience.

Splacism is a contemporary mode of practice proposed by Paul Conneally. A new set of ideologies defined by Hannah Nicklin and Nikki Pugh. A hop, skip and a jump away from phsychogeography and the works of the situationist international. Think space, place and splice. Developed empirically by whoever’s interested.

We will own this city.
We will take it back.
We will link and shift; across time, space, people, places and processes
We will weave throughout the fabric of people’s lives.
We will unpick it.

We will affect and be affected.
We will glory in the moment, the collage, the marking and then passing on.

We reject your shopping centre, your pavement, your cultural quarter;
We will under mine pre-defined spaces. We reject them.

We will reclaim the city, not for you, but with you.
We are you.
