»Rogue Agents« is a collaborative project led by Auto Italia exploring disaster and escape. Promoting a new set of archetypes for this moment where everything must change, this collectively authored intervention will seek to uncover ideas around figures that can disrupt, subvert or redirect power. Proposing new possibilities for harnessing collective imagination, »Rogue Agents« explores fictional, esoteric and latent modes of self-representation.

»Auto Italia South East« is an artist-run project and studio that commissions and produces new work – collaborating directly with emerging artists. Founded in 2007, it aims to provide a framework for developing alternative production and exhibition formats. Auto Italia is currently run by Kate Cooper, Marianne Forrest and Edward Gillman.

Throughout the history of the organization there has been a questioning of how artists can work together to develop new formats for artistic production. Projects have taken on various formats ranging form collaborative public programming in temporary spaces, commissions and presentations in institutions and galleries, and the production of collaborative projects through working online. This work has been shown nationally and internationally at Tate Modern and Institute of Contemporary Arts in London; KW Institute for Contemporary Art and abc – art berlin contemporary in Berlin; Artissima LIDO in Turin; Hessel Museum in New York; Künstlerhaus Bremen and Firstdraft in Sydney amongst others.
