Does Empathy Have Boundaries?

Does Empathy Have Boundaries?

This exhibition presents materials from the first three months of Enni-Kukka Tuomala's Campaign for Empathy.

From her base in RAW Labs, this Finnish artist has been challenging Newham residents to consider each others’ perspectives through a series of public events, and to bridge the gaps between different members of the community.

As part of the campaign, Enni-Kukka has explored the power structures and hierarchies in Newham, one of London’s youngest and most diverse boroughs. The exhibition showcases outputs from her collaboration with local decision-makers and members of the community, presenting work such as empathy maps and empathy imprints for the first time.
