Dr Kate Antosik-Parsons and Dr Emma Campbell present a public seminar on Reproductive Citizenship via provocations in response to the installation An Dún by Array Collective. Six artists, academics and activists will be asked to respond to the installation in advance of the seminar, where they will perform/discuss/unnerve our roles and responsibilities within a complex, evolving notion of citizenship.

After which, participating members of the public will respond in a creative workshop to the installation and provocations. The seminar hopes to develop resolutions or further questions about reproductive labour, citizenship and self-determination in a contemporary Shared Island. (Guests will be announced in July 2024).

Presented in Partnership with REPROCIT, Trinity College Dublin, School of Social Work and Social Policy.

About the Projects

Reproductive Citizenship: Comparative analysis of effects of differential pathways to legalising abortion on Island of Ireland on Service User Articulations of Citizenship [REPROCIT]
This study explores how abortion seekers feel about their sense of belonging, since they have been able to access most abortion care at home. We investigate the impact of state care on people’s sense of belonging to the state, or what we call reproductive citizenship. More details here

An Dún, Array Collective 
An Dún, 2024 is a new multi-narrative environment by Belfast based Array Collective. Across immersive spaces a complicated and messy understanding of statehood and citizenship is unearthed. Ideological, topographical and political plans are fashioned and accumulated inside a site of destruction and construction. Presented as part of the exhibition Self-Determination: A Global Perspective, IMMA has commissioned two new works including a site-specific installation titled, Rest by Turkish artist İz Öztat and Array Collective’s multi-narrative environment, An Dún. Presented in the Courtyard Galleries until 15 Sep 2024. More details here
