Deadline:
Fri Aug 14, 2015 12:00

With thoughtful reflections on democratic uses of public space, artists as citizens, explorers and activists utilise digital streaming and connectivity to playfully re-configure our understanding of the city.Enacting ceremonial processions, tracing alternative routes and activating dead spaces, the artists cross the City thresholds into the historical and financial heart of London, to join an exciting live art programme at the BARBICAN. In the surrounds of this iconic labyrinthine space, visitors are invited to explore new territories re-mapped by digital projections, online technologies, performance installations, and intimate interactions.

- Works that reflect on themes explored in the programme of works, including different social histories of migration, urban development/housing and communities, the personal and the public

- Works may utilize formats including video, audio, photographic, art writing

PUSH presents SOMETHING HUMAN AT THE TERMINAL


Dates:
Fri Oct 25, 2013 16:00 - Sun Oct 27, 2013

Location:
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Something Human at The Terminal is a three-day durational live art project created by Something Human for PUSH 2013.

With reference to Marc Augé’s notion of ‘non-spaces’, and the holding areas at border crossings around the world, the project examines spaces of constraints, limbo and in-betweenness, and their impact on the processes of art-making.

From Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October 2013, The Terminal unfolds between and within a three-storey warehouse in Bermondsey, a hostel in London Bridge, and their immediate surrounds where ten international artists from different backgrounds, will live and make performance together, under constant surveillance and restrictive conditions.

Along with a curated programme of talks, panel discussions and moving image works, The Terminal offers an inquiry into ‘live’ performance, contemporary notions of non-spaces, and the intersection between the public and the private.
