mise en abyme

Tags: , , , , , ,

Curated by Sandra Skurvida

Mise en abyme is a stand-in for the void, a figure opening the subjective fissures of national states, and performatively destabilizing positions of power ā€” the ā€œIā€s are focused on the potentialities of arousals and upheavals.
The program features works conditioned by the aporias of recent social, political, and ideological insurrections around the world and with reflection on Iran.
