Pop-Up Court: Diversity on Trial is the staging of a court of law with the cultural sector on trial. The Inivators have endowed themselves with the authority of an independent regulatory body, with the purpose of investigating crimes against diversity in the cultural sector. Having created their own set of 10 laws or commandments (also available here on audio), the Inivators will be in pursuit of cultural lawbreakers through a series of ‘law enforcement’ days. Members of the public will be asked to bear witness to diversity in the capital’s major arts institutions. If the institutions are found to have contravened the Inivator’s laws, they will be tried at the Pop-Up Court.
The judge at these proceedings will be artist and former commercial litigator in civil rights advocacy, Jack Tan.
This event is part of Work in Progress. a programme of events organised by the Inivators and artist Yara El-Sherbini in response to Progress Reports: art in an era of diversity.
