Gulf Labor

Represented by Natascha Sadr Haghighian

Gulf Labor is a coalition of artists and activists who have been working together since 2011 to highlight the coercive recruitment, and deplorable living and working conditions of migrant labourers in Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island [Island of Happiness]. The Gulf Labor campaign focuses on the workers who are building the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, Louvre Abu Dhabi, and the Sheikh Zayed National Museum (in collaboration with the British Museum) on Saadiyat Island.

HudRada & ISTM

Represented by Lada Nakonechna

HudRada [Artistic Committee] and ISTM [Art Workers' Self-defence Initiative] are interdisciplinary artist, curatorial and activist groups established in Kiev in 2008 and in 2013. Both aim to impact the formation of new cultural policy principles. HudRada works mostly within the realm of exhibitions, while ISTM’s main objective is to defend artists and their practices in relation to the institutions that solicit and present their work as well as to act in solidarity with other workers’ associations.

International Institute of Political Murder (IIPM)

Represented by Milo Rau

The International Institute of Political Murder was founded by theatre director Milo Rau in 2007. The IIPM’s past productions (“The Last Days of the Ceausescus,” “Breivik’s Statement,” “The Moscow Trials,” “The Civil Wars”) have enjoyed great international success and stand for a new, documentary and aesthetically compacted form of political art – with a special focus on multimedia adaptation of historical or social conflicts.

The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination (labofii)

Represented by John Jordan

At the heart of labofii’s experiments lie new ways of organising ourselves:  working without hierarchy, taking direct action against capitalism and living ecologically sensitive lives. The laboratory treats insurrection as an art and art as a means for the coming insurrections. This has included transforming bikes into tools of disobedience during the UN Climate Summit, a pirate armada to shut down a coal fired power station, sabotaging banks with ants and covering the Tate Gallery in molasses.
