Hunger for Pictures + Reality Production
Curated by Rowan Geddis
For his CuratorLab project - Performing the Techno-Imagination - Geddis borrowed the image theory of the late Czech philosopher VilémFlusser, making a performative reading of Flusser’s concept of the ‘Techno Imagination’.
This project played out in Stockholm via two stagings:
Scenes 1-3 : Tai Shani (London): Luisa Ungar (Bogota): Isak Sundström (Stockholm)
Hunger for Pictures
Scene I: Magellania - Love Enqvist (Stockholm): Sara Gebran (Denmark): Rowan Geddis (UK)
