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.

Spatio-Mnemonic Residency Launch: Stuart Mel Wilson


Dates:
Tue Oct 01, 2013 12:10 - Tue Dec 31, 2013

The Unstitute is proud to present:

Spatio-Mnemonic Virtual Residency #1

Stuart Mel Wilson

1 October-31 December 2013

Go to Residency: http://theunstitute.org/Extensions.html

Upcoming Spatio-Mnemonic Residency: Iain Rayner

The Unstitute's unique virtual residency programme is a series of developmental projects which engage with and disengage from the mobile, shifting web-architecture of The Unstitute itself. Participants do not 'question the boundaries', (as per the rhetoric of the Art Institution,) but are instead encouraged to create boundaries, objections and impasses and furthermore affirm the movements afforded by this activity. The Unstitute is a memory palace.

Crisis 2012: '...drifting towards (x)' a new project by The Unstitute


Dates:
Sat Oct 05, 2013 15:35 - Sun Oct 05, 2014


Crisis 2012: '...drifting towards (x)' Episode 1

A major new interactive archive commissioned by The Unstitute to house materials collected by the urbanist CADE during The London Crisis of 2012. Consisting of a diverse array of videos, sound recordings, topographical data and other evidence, the archive charts The Crisis from its trivial inception to the veritable collapse of the social order.

Due to the non-linear structure of this 'media diary', each individual visitor's encounter with the project is unique, mirroring the subjective nature of the inquiry. Grouped thematically into an ever-expanding number of new chambers, '...drifting towards (x)' is an essential media experiment.

Offering a unique and often harrowing record of behavioural changes in the citizenry, physical irregularities in the city itself and the government policies used
to contain The Crisis, CADE's research exposes an event which might as well have never occurred.

Dawn Woolley at The Unstitute: 'Homo Bulla'


Dates:
Tue Oct 01, 2013 12:15 - Tue Oct 15, 2013

The second installment of Dawn Woolley's programme of videos at the Projection Room is the live performance 'Homo Bulla' (Part of Cut to the Measure of Desire):

http://theunstitute.org/Projection.Room.html

"Cut to the Measure of Desire is a series of performance installations that respond to feminism and spectatorship theories; the panopticon overseer and the resulting state of perpetual exhibitionism. Using the language of symbolism in Dutch Bordeeltjes painting I create scenes of excessive sexuality. Like Dutch genre paintings, each gesture and prop is carefully chosen to symbolise promiscuity, commerce and desire. Reminiscent of the traditions of still-life painting and the tableau-vivant, I pose within the scene - an imperfect being concealed within a 2-dimensional idealised world. The aim to uphold the illusion of perfection is futile and the codes of desire crumble under the weight of the spectators gaze."

'Homo Bulla' will be screening from the 1st - 15th October 2013.
