COBRA : A Critical Response is a five year project to internationally counter-map and creatively respond to the British Government’s emergency committee COBRA.
Mirroring and reflecting, COBRA : A Critical Response also consists of a changing number of members and advisers depending on the situation and context for the original meeting. COBRA : A Critical Response meet every time COBRA meet. The first response to the Algeria meeting was in the form of an exhibition. The following response may be in the form of a publication, film, event or other.
Set up in January 2013 the project will continue over five years until 2018. In 2015 there will be a interim exhibition and event showing all the responses from the previous two and half years and then a full exhibition of all previous responses over the five years accompanied by publication in 2018.
