Keg de Souza’s work for the 20th Biennale of Sydney Redfern School of Displacement (RSD), is a call to arms to notice globally relevant issues of displacement and spatial equality. Believing that learning must also be done outside of institutions, her talks make collective knowledge a weapon against dispossession. Having direct experience with alternative spaces – both squatting and organising – de Souza is raising issues of deprivation as a result of enforced language, colonisation (as affecting Redfern’s Aboriginal community), housing, gentrification and climate change. Marginalised voices are given particular attention.

Because it’s more meaningful to learn about a place by being within it, as well as her talks, the artist, together with SquatSpace, is holding guided tours around the area.
