Silke Otto-Knapp (b. 1970, Osnabrück, Germany) lives and works in Los Angeles, USA. At the centre of her works is the construct of the stage. Motifs range from choreographed groups of figures, historical stage sets, as well as pared-down landscapes. Otto-Knapp works with watercolour on canvas using a process of removal and accumulation of pigment in order to create spaces where the flatness of the pictorial space intersects with an illusionistic construction of space.

For Liverpool Biennial 2018, Silke Otto-Knapp has been commissioned to produce a new large-scale work for the fourth-floor gallery of Bluecoat. Like a classic frieze, the painting will wrap around the perimeters of the space, combining figures in group formations with abstract panels. The painting will be accompanied by an artist’s book produced in collaboration with Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, which will be displayed in the historic women’s common room at the Victoria Gallery & Museum.

Description

Are you an EU/EEA national living in the UK? Worried about your rights and options post-Brexit?

Although the legal status of EU/EEA nationals in the UK will not change until the UK concludes its exit from the European Union, the government has so far refused to guarantee our rights.

Can we take any steps now to safeguard our futures? Join us for an evening of advice about Permanent Residency, Settled Status, Citizenship and how they may apply to you.

Agenda:

6:30PM – Doors, Introduction by Maurizio Rodorigo, INCA UK

6:40PM – Presentation by Victoria Sharkey, Immigration Lawyer

7:00PM – Q&A

Speakers:

Victoria Sharkey

Victoria Sharkey

Level 3 OISC immigration adviser. Victoria has practised immigration law since 1998. Initially with a London based private immigration firm, where she specialised in work permit applications for IT professionals.

She subsequently spent 18 months in India working with several multinational IT firms, moving project workers and their families to the UK, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

What topics will be covered?

What is the proposed “Settled Status” and the permanent residency (PR) document? What paperwork will I need? What will they cost?

What if I was a student / unemployed / out of the country / on maternity leave during my time in the UK? Can I still apply?

Am I eligible for citizenship / naturalisation?

Is this a free event?

There is small charge to attend the event. The charge covers part of the organisation of the event. If you are not able to afford the fee, please contact us. A ticket will be allocated to you.

I’m not an EU/EEA national. Can I still come?

Yes, we are happy for British nationals with good intention of supporting their EU friends to come and attend the evening!

Can I bring my own questions?

Yes, there will be a Q&A session after the talk.

Can I come and complain about how terrible Brexit is?

THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE A POLITICAL FORUM. As upset as we EU/EEA nationals may be by the result of the referendum, this evening is designed to offer legal advice.

Runder Tisch zum Thema „Brexit Citizen Rights“, Uni Manchester, 18. Dezember, 18.30 Uhr

With the support of Manchester Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCE) and INCA UK, an Italian welfare advice centre (supported by the charity ITACA) which has just opened an office in Manchester, we are organizing a round table on the Settled Status Proposal and the alternative “The3Million” proposal.

18th of December
at The University of Manchester from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

During the event the speakers will analize the Government’s Settled Status proposal and the t3m’s alternative proposal for the Home Office and inform people of the work that “the3million” is doing to protect the rights of EU nationals that currently live in the UK and those who will arrive before any cut off date.

1. Nicolas Hatton, Founder and Chairman of the3Million

THE REFORMATION – Ausstellung in der John Rylands Library in Manchester

7. September 2017 bis 4. März 2018

The Reformation invites you to journey through these tumultuous times. Find out how Luther’s work led to the splintering of the Catholic Church in England.

Learn how Henry VIII’s attempts to divorce led to him overthrowing the Catholic Church and electing himself head of the Church of England.

And discover why William Tyndale’s translation of the bible into English is still felt in the language we speak today.

Explore our exhibition and see a rare copy of Luther’s 95 theses, as well as a letter handwritten by Luther himself. There is also one of the earliest examples of printing – an indulgence printed in 1455.

John Rylands Library hat eine Reihe von kurzen Videos über einige der ausgestellten Objekte gefilmt, z. B. einen Ablassbrief von 1455…
