This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Glasgow-based curatorial co-operative Chapter Thirteen presents an exhibition that champions empathy, love and healing as visceral approaches to political discourse. Who’s Counting? pairs a new project by Margaret Salmon that reflects on feminist economic theory alongside context-responsive work exploring the notion of ‘repair’ by Kader Attia. This is the first time that work by Attia – who divides his time between Berlin and Paris, where he also runs event space La Colonie – has been shown in Scotland.
The exhibition incorporates additional materials and expands into a wider programme of events and discussions, all of which take place in the historic Pearce Institute (established 1906), a civic resource in Govan built with the profits from Glasgow’s largest shipyard.
