Precarious Solidarities" takes Artists for Democracy (AFD) as a starting point to explore the entanglement of artistic practices with transnational solidarities shaped by migration and political mobilisation. AFD formed in London in 1974 to give 'material and cultural support to liberation movements worldwide'. Through detailed contextualisation, commissions from scholars, artists, and extensive archival documentation, Precarious Solidarities approaches these histories through an intersection of multiple overlapping agencies and conditions of possibility - artistic, social, political, historical and geographic - to explore the potentials of these histories today.
