Ruth Ewan frequently works with collaborators to realise her projects, which are often grounded in focused research into the social and political history of the site in which they are based.
Previous projects have involved historians, activists, archaeologists, bakers, school children, buskers and composers.

Ruth’s best known work A Jukebox of People Trying to Change the World is an interactive archive of over 1,500 socially engaged songs from across the world which are catergorised into themes such as ‘Law and Order’, ‘Feminism’, ‘Freedom’
and ‘Slavery’.
This project has been shown in museums
internationally including New Museum,
New York, Prada Foundation, Venice and
Tate Liverpool.

Her audio project ‘The Darks’ is currently
on show at Tate Britain and she is working
towards a major solo exhibition at
Camden Arts Centre, London in 2015.
