An event in collaboration with VIDEONALE.scope #7: Ghosts in the Gardens of Progress
Guided tour through the exhibition "Majnoon Field" with the artist Rheim Alkadhi and the curator Aneta Rostkowska.
Rheim Alkadhi, Our Current Dwelling Is Fire, 2018, Live appearance, projected image, spoken text (in Engl.)
A pixelated performer (in regional ‘emo’ style) appears behind a dais of smoke and before an artifacted, neo-liberalized desert. Queered anarchies, choreographies across borders, and surviving poison clouds; the body convulses – this is still emancipatory practice for some of us.
Followed by a get-together with coffee & cake.
