Asia-Art-Activism (AAA) was launched in 2018 as a voluntary interdisciplinary, intergenerational and inter- sectional network of practitioners, and invited to take up residence at Raven Row in London, alongside other collectives of marginalized communities. ‘Taking space’ as a group of Asian, migrant, and diasporic bodies was activated as both a performative and political gesture in London, a historical site of colonial institutions and traditional instruments of power. From August 2018 to December 2019, AAA has presented a series of performances, presentations, mini-residencies, workshops and other events as part of a programme that was aimed at complicating the imaginary of ‘Asia’ while nurturing questions related to collectivising and solidarity at the intersections of art and activism. www.asia-art-activism.net
