MAGNETIC NORTH
OCTOBER: 12 18 19 20 25 26 27



These works interrogate the complex and delicate issues surrounding representation and imaging, exploring self-disclosure, surveillance, objectification, subjectivity, and individual agency. Ranging from subversive documentary to explicit performance, they explore the possibilities and limits of representing both self and other, often overtly implicating both maker and viewer in the act of imaging. Program length 96 minutes.
