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: Online Projection Room

Sun Sep 15, 2013 21:25 - Tue Oct 15, 2013

Screening #1

Dawn Woolley

'Encounters' (15th September - 1st October)
'Homo Bulla'(1st October - 15th October)

My artistic practice encompasses photography, video, installation and performance. I use photographs of objects and people to question issues of artificiality and idealisation. The artwork forms an enquiry into the act of looking and being looked at. Referring to psychoanalysis, phenomenology and feminism I examine my own experience of becoming an object of sight and also consider the experience the viewer has when looking at me as a female, and a photographic object. Voyeurism and exhibitionism intertwine as I attempt to disrupt relationships of power in purposefully provocative scenes.


The Projection Room at The Unstitute was created to show experimental video art. Works are selected on the basis of their ability to provoke thought, reaction and engagement on the visual, audible and conceptual levels, whether in a positive or negative fashion. Videos are not selected on the basis of technical merit or aspiration to conventional standards.

Future Projection Room screenings include Rebecca LaMarre, FUTURE DEATH TOLL, Mladen Stropnik, Dawn Nye and more to be announced...

Open Submission at The Unstitute: [dis]Corporate Bodies

Tue Dec 31, 2013 17:55

PROJECT: (dis)Corporate Bodies
(Undermining the Institution)


The Unstitute is offering an opportunity for practitioners to contribute towards a radical new form of interactive archive which aims to subvert the notion of 'The Institution'.


The Unstitute proposes to forge new connections in anti-establishment thought and practise in its new interactive archive: [dis]Corporate Bodies. Individuals and groups are invited to create new works or select existing works which respond to the theme 'Under-Mining the Institution' - an activity which could involve plans, excavations, extractions, subversions, criticisms - by selecting an institution and actively mining the fabric upon which its 'institutional' structure rests. This could take the form of creating a subversive 'clone' of the target institution, a direct attack against an institution, an institutional satire or critique - the brief is only limited by the imagination and interest of the participants. Works can be of any kind - photographs, drawings, texts, plans, maps, audio, videos, diagrams, stories, games - so long as they can be presented in a HTML webpage.

Upon receipt of these responses to the brief, archivists at The Unstitute will piece-together these deterritorialised fragments into an interactive labyrinth which can be navigated and explored by visitors, deep in the underground recesses of The Unstitute's burrow-like structure.

How to apply

To take part in this experiment, please send a brief description of how your work responds to the brief and send works/links to works to theunstitute@gmail.com. This is an ongoing open call with no closing date, and applicants may submit as many works as they wish. The selection criteria will be defined by your contributions, and will only come into being as the archive develops. If selected, your contribution will be credited and will form part of a rhizomatic structure embedded inside The Unstitute and promoted as part of our ongoing activity.

The Unstitute offers no financial support to contributors. The edifice exists only in temporary, dynamic structures which cluster, shift and concentrate according to the drive of contributors to experiment with establishment ideas. It exists as a defensive stronghold within the Internet.

Drifting towards (x)...

The Unstitute is curating a vast new video archive which documents the War of London which happened in secret in 2012 and involved a total breakdown of civic order and civilized behaviour in the Metropolitan area. A new wing is being developed to house this invaluable and unique archive which will be fully interactive to viewers, providing a personal insight into a city-wide crisis.
