Lucia Fortune-Ely, geography student at University of Bristol, leads a tour of the exhibition New Eelam: Bristol and discusses the role that contemporary art can play in reimagining cities and communities.

New Eelam is a real estate technology company founded by artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas in order to develop a global housing subscription based on collective co-ownership rather than individually owned private property. Initiated as a long-term artwork in the form of a startup, the venture has brought together an interdisciplinary team of specialists across the fields of technology, art, real estate, finance and architecture to explore how a more liquid form of citizenship could be constructed beyond national boundaries.
