Dissenting Desires: Artists’ Film in Eastern Europe in the 1970s and 1980s
Screening at the Cube at the Project Arts Centre, 6-7.30 pm, 10th December
Life in Eastern Europe in the 1970s and 1980s was shaped in the image of the grey-suited authorities that held on to power. Sexuality and gender roles were understood in the most conventional terms. A small number of 'underground' artist-film-makers in the Eastern Bloc channelled their desire for difference by performing before the camera. Some of their rarely-seen works will be screened in the Cube at the Project Arts Centre, 6-7.30 pm, Tuesday 10th December 2019, in conjunction with the exhibition of Anna Daučíková's work in the gallery.
