It is in this context that FACELESS, Manu Luksch 2007, is shown on 4 Nov 2013, 20:00, alongside Stopover in Dubai, Chris Marker, France, 2011, presented by Christa Blümlinger. Cinema 2.
01.Oct.13 LONDON: Urban Wandering at Barbican
Faceless (UK 2008 Dir Manu Luksch 50 min) + Shorts (12A) + ScreenTalk with Manu Luksch and Emily Richardson - Tue 1 Oct 8pm, Cinema 3, as part of Urban Wandering:
A season of films and events which explore issues and debates in 'psychogeography' and our experience of the city, with a particular focus on our neighbouring boroughs in the East End. Over the last ten years a significant number of films have been made which connect with the psychogeography theme, and there has been much writing and debate on the subject. But this work has never been brought together as part of a comprehensive or unified film project. 'Urban Wandering' will thus be an innovative venture, and the approaches will be diverse; film will be at the heart of the programme, accompanied by introductions and screen talks, readings, walks, masterclasses and discussion.

27.Sep.13 LONDON: Friday Lunchtime Lecture at ODI
Friday lunchtime lectures (1 - 1:45 pm) are for everyone and free to attend. Manu Luksch willl present her artistic research project, FACELESS: Chasing the Data Shadow. Pioneering the notion of the 'legal ready mades', the sci-fi fairy tale FACELESS was entirely produced through activation of data protection legislation. The film interrogates the laws that govern the video surveillance of society, and in both its mode of coming into being and its plot, critiques such a surveilled society.
STILL/CURRENT is a five-part programme of works by choreographer Russell Maliphant. It includes two new pieces, one of which is a major new duet, danced by Russell and Caryl Staton, with music by Mukul - their fourth collaboration. STILL/CURRENT has a preliminary UK tour starting this week, and will be performed at Sadler's Wells in Spring 2014, with international dates to follow.
Please come to meet, talk, and enjoy a drink with New York-based artist and photographer RACHEL SUSSMAN at ambientspace. 
For nearly a decade, Rachel has been developing 'The Oldest Living Things in the World' – a document of continuously living organisms that are at least 2,000 years old, and often far older. Her research has taken her right across the planet from poles to tropics, from the desert expanses of the American southwest into the labs of paleomicrobiologists investigating half-million year old bacterial colonies. Her work involves assiduous research, extreme travel, and a commitment to a nature. A monograph is due out in Spring 2014 from the University of Chicago Press.
  Rachel is currently artist in residence at as part of the A|R|C programme.
A|R|C invites international artists for collaborative residencies to consider the prospect from the studio in the metaphorical sense of possible futures.

The exhibition “FACELESS part I”, opening at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL/MQ on July 3 at 19:00, presents contemporary works from the worlds of art and fashion in which faces are hidden, transformed, or masked. The show compiles about one hundred works by artists including Marina Abramović, Manu Luksch, Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau, Katsuya Kamo for Junya Watanabe COMME des GARÇONS, Ursula Hübner.

For artist Bogomir Doringer (SRB/NED), curator of the exhibition together with Brigitte Felderer from the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the exhibition was chiefly inspired by the sociopolitical consequences of 9/11. As the value of facial identifiability has risen, abstracted forms and representations of faces have become increasingly common in artistic production.
