OK Democracy, We Need to Talk

‘OK Democracy, We Need to Talk’ considers the positive potential of democracy as well as its inability to fulfil this destiny with particular reference to the question of how the system is currently performed. New commissions from artists Richard Bell, Louisa Bufardeci, Kuba Dorabialski, Deborah Kelly, Eugenia Lim, Make or Break, Eugenia Raskopoulos, Sarah Rodigari, Abdullah M.I. Syed and Lara Thoms focus on the role of media in democracy; which leads to themes of identity politics, the environment, economies of labour, nationalism and more.
