ABOUT THE PROGRAM
London based artists, allsopp&weir will screen and discuss past projects investigating the affective dimension of contemporary political power and representation, including ‘…And While We Were on Air”, a video produced from BBC newsreaders’ breath; “Fly No Fly Zone” shot from a kite-mounted surveillance camera in London; and “Call to Prayer” a recent collaboration with an opera singer. They will also show and discuss some new work “To The Place or Being in The Place” using cut-up English and Serbian/Croatian language learning cassettes, “Pirate Radio” intervention into language and manifestos, and the ‘Reunion’ project developed by curators B+B – meeting points between critical art practices in the Southeast Europe and the UK.
