Ruth Catlow of Furtherfield: Art, Play and the Imagining of New Worlds

Episode Summary

Ruth Catlow is an artist, curator, and co-leader of Furtherfield, a London-based arts collective that has been convening playful, participatory art projects for more than 25 years. The group's artistic experiments -- deeply rooted in open source technologies and philosophies -- use digital platforms and its green space and gallery in Finsbury Park to invite people to imagine new shared futures. The aim, in Furtherfield's words, is to "disrupt and democratize existing hegemonies" and "re-landscape the terrain."
