Citizenshop at Tate

2016 alum Nele Vos was invited to show her graduation project Citizenshop at Tate as part of the Tate Exchange’s ‘Who Are We?’ project.

Citizenshop is an interactive travelling installation that opposes the neoliberal concept of the acquisition of citizenship by investment, as is offered by an increasing number of governments across the world today.

Instead, it asserts the multidimensional needs and interpretations of citizenship by the world’s peoples, and instigates a radical humanistic inquiry that seeks to stimulate new questions.

The installation interrogates emerging questions surrounding citizenship, such as the economic privatisation of the nation state, the worldwide increase in migration, cross-border interlinked technologies and the disadvantages faced by the majority of people under these new international circumstances.
