The Coming South: Struggles, Epistemologies, Solidarity seeks to respond to the deepening divides that sustain the polarisation and hierarchy justifying the Global North - Global South world order. This world order is made manifest not just in global geopolitics but also in the micro-environments of urban spaces, defining formal and informal relationships that range from those between nation states to those between local communities. Generations of political militants, intellectuals and activists have engaged with these issues - issues that are only exacerbated today, during the pandemic, and in the aftermath of the global financial crisis of 2008 which has demonstrated and worsened a number of other crises as the status quo of globalisation.

The Power of Transparency consists of 14 one-minute videos made by artists in isolation in China, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Now that the whole world is locked down at home, we are united in isolation. Although restrained, there is no limitation to our imagination. Close your eyes and let what is opaque become transparent. Transparency is the perfect camouflage. If there is nothing to hide, why fear it? Can we practise transparency to transfer and filter overwhelming information? Can we become transparent to reflect our emotions in an imbalance of power?
