Event Tintin Wulia

Tintin Wulia

First Thursdays

06 December 2018
6pm–9pm

For this last First Thursdays event of 2018, artist Tintin Wulia invites you to take part in Make Your Own Passport (2014–ongoing), a participatory public installation and workshop on citizenship, border-crossing, and statelessness. Held previously in markets and public places, Wulia invites you to make your own passport at the IMA. You’ll be assigned a national identity randomly based on passports from around the world, or you could be one of the participants assigned ‘stateless’ status. Personalise and bind your new passport and take part in open conversations around issues of migration.

Working closely with local collaborators Misha Emingerova and Stephen Jorgensen, Wulia’s Make Your Own Passport becomes part of The Passport Chain, a social campaign supporting refugees and people seeking asylum. The Passport Chain, initiated with the Romero Multicultural Hub and Lourdes Hills College, spans a network of organisations including Refugees Welcome Australia and Amnesty International Australia, QLD.

This event forms part of Wulia’s contribution to Artspace’s 52 ARTISTS 52 ACTIONS; a year-long project highlighting artistic practice across Asia, inviting creative responses to political and social issues.
