The IMMA International Summer School 2022 will take place online between 20 June and 8 July, 2022. This three-week programme of lectures, seminars, discussions and workshops will feature a range of national and international artists, theorists and educators including Jessica Zychowicz, Yael Bartana, Jumana Manna, Banu Cennetoğlu, Ibrahim Mahama, Eimear Walshe, Hồng-Ân Trương, Lydia Ourahmane, Yael Vishnizki-Levi, Sofiia Korotkevych, Lia Dostlieva, Olia Fedorova, Valerie Karpan, Maryna Marinichenko, Stephen O’Neill, Laura McAtackney,  Padraig Regan, Mairéad McClean, Declan Long, John Wilkins and Rebecca Devaney.

The theme of this year’s summer school is self-determination and it is part of a wider programme of activities  to mark a century since the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922. Associated historically with processes of nation-building, nationalism and decolonisation, self-determination is now enshrined in international law and underpins demands for human rights, civil liberties, and equal opportunities.  The Summer School 2022 will explore the theme of self-determination as a political, social and cultural construct, past and present, foregrounding the role of art and artists in relation to processes of nation-building, state-formation, decolonisation and the formation of official archives, and the development of new frameworks for self-determination and autonomy in the contemporary world.

We are interested in the implications of self-determination in terms of the structuring of nations, with their selections and exclusions, and in engendering individual demands for autonomy and self-governance. Over the course of the summer school we will consider this theme through a number of lenses, asking what it means to determine who you are, where you come from, where you belong, and how individual demands for autonomy and self-governance – the imperatives to determine one’s own identity, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, political affiliation, or nationality – align with or disrupt those of the state.

The IMMA International Summer School 2022 is free to participants from Ireland and all over the world. Most of the programme will take place online and will include contributions from a range of national and international artists, theorists and educators.

This interdisciplinary programme will be of particular interest to artists, students and graduates and anyone with an interest in the subject of self-determination, and many elements of the programme will be open to the public.

This event is part of a three-year initiative culminating in a major exhibition in 2023 supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries Programme 2012-2023.
