Artist collective Troika, Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel, in conversation with guest curator Kiki Mazzucchelli will discuss prescriptions of knowledge, framed in the context of their recent public artwork ‘Continental Drift’ for Cambridge’s CB1 development.

The artwork consists of a rotating faceted globe which projects a map of over 10m onto the ceiling. The map continuously shifts, stretches and rearranges itself - a map in which landmass is not static nor organised in an established cartographic format.

Contrary to a conventional world-map, the continents here drift in and out of the centre, in and out of focus, each instance presenting just another, yet equally true, version of the world.

This event is part of Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
