ASIA-ART-ACTIVISM: Experiments in Care and Collective Disobedience
is a polyvocal collection of 18 essays by leading academics, artists, curators and researchers who address urgent questions of the complexities of UK Black/Asian race relations and migrations, in parallel with global Black/Asia political entanglements and tensions, reflections on the rise of anti-Asian/migrant sentiment in the UK in relation to the ‘Hostile environment’ and the weaponisation of the Covid-19 pandemic.
