PORTFOLIO (1)
BIO
The Unstitute is an Evolving Interactive Environment which consists of a series of makeshift sites and excavations created in the form of a digital burrow. Built to offer challenges to establishment language and practise, The Unstitute creates and curates multi-media digital projects, manifesto writing machines and anarchic web-design as well as supporting up to four online residencies per year and a monthly video-channel as a part of its ongoing Participation programme.

Each department of The Unstitute's virtual building constitutes a series of movements which proliferate into extensions and entrances, holes and dead-ends, annexes and chambers - never singular, absolute, permanent, profound – always plural, temporary, mobile, superficial.

The Unstitute: visit new virtual worlds

This month at The Unstitute...

THE_PROJECTION_ROOM:

Oskar Johanson
On Thames


screening from_15/06/15_to_15/07/15

This month The Unstitute continues to present a monthly programme of artists' videos selected from a variety of open submissions. This month we present a fascinating video 'On Thames' by Oskar Johanson.

On Thames is a short film that follows Sergei Rudenko, a Ukrainian national who believes the City of London Corporation has been secretly transforming the entire Square Mile into a vehicle capable of intercontinental flight.

Oskar Johanson is an artist and writer based in London. He graduated from Goldsmiths with a BA in Fine Art and the History of Art (Dual Honours) in 2013. He is currently studying architecture at the Architectural Association, and is co-editor of the weekly periodical PNYX.

[dis]CORPORATE_BODIES_7

Pause In A Storm
an Evolving [an]Archive

_ongoing_growth_

[dis]Corporate Bodies 7 deals with a punctuated body of Evidence. The Unstitute invites you to the cavernous and well hidden structure of this remote human-made territory called [dis]Corporate Bodies. The most bizarre objections to normalcy and behaviors are presented in this edition for your interactive viewing.

The un-naming 'Pause in a Storm' here carries a precarious meaning, roughly mapped out from the furthest satellite, this collection of works presents a strange constellation; made in the form of an excavation and occupying various planes converging to create a large Existential Body.

The Unstitute is excited to present participating artists: Catherine Biocca (NL), Timothy Geers (USA), Gordon Culshaw (UK), Heidi Hörsturz (Galaxy YoYo, DE), Eden Mitsenmacher (UK/IL), Catalina Ouyang (globally transient), Scott Morrison (AU) and The Institute of Film & Video Studies (DK/UK)

THE_CUTTING_ROOM:

Longbridge
by The Institute of Film & Video Studies

_temporary_/_superficial_

The Institute of Film and Video Studies was a center for Moving Image Research and Radical Archivism, (or MIRRA,) chiefly comprised of an anonymous group of anti-establishment figures that was founded in 2008 in Copenhagen, before being dissolved prematurely in 2010. The Institute was established for the gathering and assembly of video archives from an unscientific perspective, often geared toward the construction of new urban environments.

...Copenhagen, St George’s Day 2008. The Institute of Film and Video Studies produced a documentary about a mysterious case of arson somehow connected to the coincidental encounter of three individuals at the famous landmark of Longbridge. The documentary presents original footage from the only surviving piece of evidence-a video tape recorded by the arsonist who was compiling a video archive spanning years of private surveillance of the citizens of Copenhagen.

Call for submissions: [dis]CORPORATE_BODIES

Undermining the Institution
an Evolving [an]Archive

_ongoing_growth_


We are open to submissions for the next edition of [dis]Corporate Bodies; a project which under-mines the Institution. We want to see digital material in any format which relates to specifically to the Architecture of the Institution - and ways in which it can be subverted. This activity could involve plans, excavations, extractions, subversions, criticisms - by selecting an institution and actively mining the fabric upon which its 'institutional' structure and status rests.

You can view previous editions of [dis]Corporate Bodies by following the link below. The Unstitute thrives on the motivation of contributors - all submissions are treated with respect - but we do encourage all applicants to read the project brief here, as well as to explore The Unstitute to see a little more about what we are trying to build.

The Unstitute: visit new virtual worlds + open submissions


Dates:
Fri May 15, 2015 14:00 - Mon Jun 15, 2015

Capitalism is a machine for the production of waste.

Patrick Moser
Saturn Fishing

screening from_15/05/15_to_15/06/15

This month The Unstitute presents a double bill of artists' videos selected from a huge variety of open submissions. We trust you will find them both complementary and moving.

...Personal experiences such as love, loneliness and longing are taken at face value but are immediately turned into points of systematic general inquiry. The banal becomes serious, and vice versa. Presenting hyper-worlds, built from cultural stereotypes and clichés, then pushed to the brink of emotional overload.
Eden Mitsenmacher (IL/UK)

I make paintings, drawings and experimental performance videos. I am excited by physical and emotional spaces that are simultaneously heavy and light, something like the experience of one’s own child, a conflation of deep love and profound fear. I find the intentional misuse of tools thrilling, seeding new outcomes, shaping fantasy, melancholy and futility.
Patrick Moser (USA)

Ever wondered who - or what - was behind the door late at night? Keyhole is an obscene fragment from de Oratore - an experimental archive at The Unstitute just waiting to be explored.
