Desire Lines takes as its starting point the rich heritage of the co-operative movement in Lincoln, where co-ops still play a vital role in the local economy and community. Involving the various communities in the city, the project will explore traditions of working together for the common good and alternative economic models, whilst focusing on people’s political desires for the future organised around the ideas of working together, sharing & commoning.
Alicja Rogalska’s practice is interdisciplinary & focuses on social structures & the political subtext of the everyday. She mostly works in specific contexts making situations, performances, videos and installations in collaboration with other people. The recurring subjects of her work are body & affect, especially in relation to labour, economy and class, as well as alternative future imaginaries.
