Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art

Thomas Abercromby & The School of Mutants

A room with white walls, the walls are covered with hanging artwork and coats, and in the centre are a selection of brightly coloured chairs with a lectern and microphone in front.

The School of Mutants, founded in Dakar in 2018, is a nomadic collaborative platform for art and research focusing on the role of pedagogy in post-independent Senegal and West Africa. Through installations, fieldwork, films, publications, and public assemblies, it aims to generate knowledge in inclusive ways, reflecting on African futurism, anti-imperialist ecologies, and global solidarities.

Thomas Abercromby is an artist and curator exploring micro-utopias and underrepresented narratives through various mediums, including film, installations, and pedagogical programming.
