The Politics in the Room – In Eight Chapters

The Politics in the Room –
In Eight Chapters

16 March – 16 April

The Politics in the Room is an exhibition in the form of eight video episodes distributed and archived online. It is the first public project of the LUX Associate Artists Programme and is loosely structured around a comment by the American artist Gregg Bordowitz that questioned not what constitutes politics in general but rather what are the politics of the room you are in.

Together, the episodes crucially map a set of contemporary relationships between criticality and artistic practice from the separate yet interlinking perspectives of the eight Associate Artists: Claire Hope, Anja Kirschner, Matthew Noel-Tod, Rachel Reupke, James Richards, James Sweetbaum, Mayling To and Katy Woods.

Two episodes will be released each week for four weeks. You can register for updates and view the released episodes at: www.thepoliticsintheroom.org

On Saturday 21st March, 2pm, Don’t Touch the White Woman (1974) by Marco Ferreri is shown at the Rio Cinema E8, accompanied by a talk by writer and filmmaker Neil Gray. This public event, co-curated with Anthony Iles, forms part of Anja Kirschner’s contribution to the series.

The LUX Associate Artists Programme is a unique, post-academic, London-based course for artists working with the moving image that is lead by Ian White, writer, artist and adjunct film curator at Whitechapel Gallery. It is generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

The programme is managed and facilitated by LUX, an arts agency which explores ideas around artists’ moving image practice through exhibition, distribution, publishing, education and research. www.lux.org.uk
