Autopoiesis invites submission of visual and textual material from people who are either from or living in/visiting the United Arab Emirates. You don't have to be necessarily an 'artist' as such as we are interested in encouraging everyday people to reflect on issues concerning their identities and cultures in relation to their daily lives in the UAE, and submit work that is representative and symbolic of these.

Your work can be in any of these forms:
  • Photographs and videos
  • Poetry
  • Short narratives and stories
  • Paintings and drawings
  • Songs and music
Some of the key themes include:
  • People at work/at home/at play
  • Personal memories
  • Identity
  • Citizenship
  • Migration
  • Community life
  • Development of the UAE
Please include the following with your submission:
  • A short biography of yourself (up to 150 words)
  • A short description of your submitted piece(s)

We will be exhibiting a selection of work on the website and organising a physical display at King's College London at a later stage.
