Ellie Harrison's research is concerned with the ethical implications of choosing the career of artist in the twenty-first century. She advocates an approach to practice in which the artist becomes adept at switching between different ‘hats’ – moving between direct political action and more frivolous art world spectacle in order to raise questions about and challenge different aspects of our current political and economic order.
