‘Programmed Inscriptions’ @ Landsarkivet, Jun 21

, 20 June 2016

Afternoon lecture and screening, ‘Programmed Inscriptions’,  is on at Gothenburg’s Landsarkivet in Sweden on June 22.

Organised by Gluey-c —the design and archiving collaboration also responsible the Communicating the Archive: Inscription lecture series last year —the event is centred around a lecture by writer and new media theorist Wendy Hui Kyong Chun examining the dissemination of writing in digital media which exists “everywhere and nowhere”, “widely and wildly”.

The press release continues, “we now write when we are silent through data analytics that link our silences to others’ noise.”

Artist duo Hannah QuinlanRosie Hastings, who have recently shown and screened work at DRAF in London and Room E 10-27 in Paris, will also screen film ‘UK Gay Bar Directory’. In their ongoing ‘@Gaybar’ project they ‘inscribe’ disappearing gay bars across the UK by using a GoPro camera when the spaces are empty, as it allows for the character of the bar to emerge, something in itself captured in short words amongst the the full title for the work: ‘UK Gay Bar Directory: Centre Stage / Vanilla / Eagle / Eva / Pink Rooms / Switch.’

Also screened during the short two-hour event will be film ‘Critical Mass: Pure Immanence’ by artist Anne De Vries whose recent show Submission at Cell Project Space in London contextualised it within a larger installation.
