Urban Lab Films: DEMOLITION - Art and Choreography


The Cinema Museum | (link Map)
2 Dugard Way | London | SE11 4TH | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

For the second event of Urban Lab Films DEMOLITION season, 'Art and Choreography', we will be exhibiting short films and presentations around the theme of interaction between art, artists and demolition. We will be exhibiting short films and presentations by artists who move beyond documenting demolition to creatively occupying sites slated for destruction, working with or against such destructive forces, sometimes participating in the act themselves.

The programme includes Gordon Matta-Clark's Splitting (1974), Thomas Klipper's Drowning Hercules (2001), Discharge/Recharge (2013) by the Office for Subversive Architecture, Mark Dixon's Breaking Up (2005), Hilary Powell's Model Collapse (2013), Doug Aitken's House (2010) and Rebecca Loyche's Still Life (2011).

There will also be a discussion with Hilary Powell, Thomas Klipper, Mark Dixon and Karsten Huneck, chaired by Dr Ben Campkin (Director, UCL Urban Laboratory).
