Siraj Izhar

Siraj Izhar is an artist, activist and organiser with a practice based in autonomous spaces and informal networks. He could be described as a psychogeographic or situationist practitioner. His practice focuses on aesthetic formations and modes of representation that evolve out of unframed situations such as encampments and occupations as at Parliament Square, Westminster (2010), or migrant/refugee jungles in Calais (2006 onwards), or with community interaction in housing estates as at the Unité d’Habitation in Nantes (2006-9). He writes regularly, most recently for Critical Legal Thinking and Public Seminar.
