NON XCHANGE is a multidisciplinary series of events, creating a borderless network for understanding, exchange and collaboration, taking place at various locations in the UK, Germany and South Africa.

NON XCHANGE materialises and builds upon the international connections already established by NON’s projects and artistic affiliations. Through performance, discussion, and exhibitions, NON XCHANGE confronts spatial violence and systemic exclusion, forming a cultural dissent against the structural legacy of colonialism.

Presented by Thirty Three Thirty Three, NON & ICA.

The opening event of NON XCHANGE is a panel discussion, it will focus upon individual and collective bodies that come together in resistance to existing hierarchies of power and structures of oppression. Departing from the performativity of the United Nations’ as a theatrical platform for global politics, the speakers will consider and reflect upon how artists can create social spaces that disrupt the flow of power. How does our investment in a notion of ‘global identity’ tie us to the valuation of certain notion of community and the rejection of other evident bodies?

Chaired by curator and writer Osei Bonsu. Speakers include artist, DJ and writer Juliana Huxtable, Professor Akwugo Emejulu (University of Warwick) and filmmaker and academic Kodwo Eshun (Goldsmiths University).

NON XCHANGE will premiere a new film made in collaboration with Harley Weir and Grace Wales Bonner. The experimental film scored by Devonte Hynes explores a broad spectrum of dance, via the protagonist Leroy Mokgatle, a 17-year-old ballet dancer from Pretoria, South Africa. Collaging dance scenes spanning across Johannesburg and Cape Town, fantasy and reality intertwine as the extremes of discipline are explored through the people we meet along the way.
