Introduction to Political Arts Residency 2014

Celebrating the launch of the inaugural Political Arts Residency at Leiden University, this work introduced an audience of students, academics, diplomats, and professionals on 2 December 2013 to the work and inspiration of our first Artist In Residence: Lien Fan Shen.

Lien will be hosted by the Honours Academy in Leiden during May and June 2014, with activities which promise to open eyes and minds. Do stay tuned about her residency at
