festival / exhibition / conference

12. - 16.Jun.14 LONDON: Ghost on the Wire
Group exhibition at Bermondsey Project Space, featuring artists from the United Kingdom, Singapore and beyond, and curated by Gavin Maughfling and Suzanne de Emmony:
"We have invited film-makers, painters, installation and sound artists, photographers, writers and choreographers and others to respond to our theme, which is communication: how we use, adapt and subvert technologies to communicate across time and space, and perhaps how we are in turn shaped by our use of these innovations."
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.

03.Jul.13 - 01.Sep.13 VIENNA: Museumsquartier / quartier21
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.
