Courses

A screening of artist film and video, curated by Jill Daniels, Inga Burrows and Matthias Kispert

On Wednesday 29 January, 6–9pm

UEL University Square Campus, Stratford

Studio 4, US3.26, 1 Salway Pl, London E15 1NF

Please RSVP if you are interested in coming.

Featuring works by Maite Abella (Netherlands), Silva Amancei & Bogdan Armanu (Romania), Jill Daniels (UK), Johannes Gierlinger (Austria), Mario Hamad (UK), Felice Hapetzeder (Sweden), Matthias Kispert (UK), Thomas Kneubühler (Canada/Switzerland), Treasa O’Brien (Ireland), Oliver Ressler (Austria), Stephen Wardell (USA).

Wishful Images presents works that envisage, address and/or document ways of being and acting together, that propose collective ways out of the present moment marked by multiple crises, including a return of old tribalisms and politics of hate, increasing precarity and social inequalities, and looming climate catastrophe. Despite this pessimistic outlook, the present moment also contains within it the seeds for a different kind of world, and it is through identifying, amplifying and connecting moments of resistance, solidarity and shared creativity with local communities that these seeds can find a common ground in which to take hold and grow.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with some of the artists, a discussion and refreshments.

We would also like to alert you to a fundraiser for the activist group featured in Oliver Ressler's film Everything's Coming Together While Everything's Falling Apart: Limity jsme my.
