In Real Live Thursdays #5: Documenting Complexity

In Real Live Thursdays #5: Documenting Complexity

In solidarity with...

How documentary makers relate to the world they document is changing - due to the use of new technologies, changing social relations, experimental ways of storytelling and multidisciplinary practices. Journalism becomes intimately entangled with art, design and activism. The two years running research trajectory Documenting Complexity zooms in on the myriad ways in which documentary makers reveal structural injustice by showing how the world folds and unfolds, veils and lays bare, gives and takes.

On 2 September, MU brings together filmmakers and artists whose work proposes alternative imaginaries for resistance. Claude Nassar and Astrid Feringa will discuss their most recent artistic research projects. Sunjoo Lee, Seokyung Kim and Timm Donke will introduce Tree-001 – a video stream about human/nonhuman encounters.

Where: MU Hybrid Art House | When: Thursday 2 September | Time: 19.30 doors open, 20.00 start program, 22.00 end | Tickets: 5,- regular / 2,50 student | Language: English


Documenting Complexity is an NWO funded research collective in which MU collaborates with University of Groningen, Hogeschool Utrecht (JournalismLab), Beeld & Geluid, VersPers and WORM.
