Patti Ellis and myself were asked to represent LAT[E]WI and sit on a panel for the launch of Year of Resilience (YOR). A 2 day international academic artistic conference.
Patti talked about the students participation and showed the film that came out of the symposium. (I’ll post a link when it goes live.)
I talked about squatting housing and my contribution to LAT[E]WI. (featured 3 posts down)
My presentation was quite time limited but went something like this

I also showed a short version of this which I consider to be as much activism as art.

I’m gonna go see this it looks like fun

I went to this last week amazing show, it made me laugh a lot but also provoked many thoughts on art politics Ideologys amongst others.

This piece was in the show

Disabled mannequins will be eliciting astonished looks from passers-by on Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse. Between the perfect mannequins, there will be figures with scoliosis or brittle bone disease modelling the latest fashions. One will have shortened limbs; the other a malformed spine

The campaign has been devised for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities by Pro Infirmis, an organisation for the disabled. Entitled “Because who is perfect? Get closer.”, it is designed to provoke reflection on the acceptance of people with disabilities. Director Alain Gsponer has captured the campaign as a short film.
