Join artists Sutapa Biswas, Jessy Jetpacks and Zadie Xa as they discuss how they use moving image in their art and its potential for structural change, chaired by broadcaster, film-maker and journalist Bidisha.

With a focus on moving image, our panel of artists address the different ways in which artists are able to create structural change through their practice. Dig deeper into the role of language and traditional artistic practice and how they perpetuate structures of power. How can the language of moving image be used to destabilise conventional gender and racial positions in an attempt to reframe the boundaries of society?

By referring to their own practices, our panel explores the capacity of filmmaking, to challenge and rewrite conventional structures and knowledge. Join in as we discuss the significance of moving image in the context of emancipation, political struggle and contemporary feminism.
