Tapes Under the Bed is a selection of screenings and talks taking place at TU Dublin on Saturday 26th of November, with an additional launch at the Project Arts Centre of essays ‘BUILDING, CLOTHING, CHAMBER POT’ by Alison Mac Cormaic and Lisa Godson, and ‘Try Lizzie Borden: Derry Film and Video Workshop & distribution beyond the Broadcast Ban’ by Isobel Harbison. Tapes Under the Bed is curated by IMMA in association with their exhibition The Otolith Group: Xenogenesis.
‘Tapes Under the Bed is a one-day international seminar comprising of talks, screenings and panel discussions exploring how to best preserve endangered film and video archives from the 1980s onwards. Featuring the work of Derry Film and Video Workshop, Mayday Rooms, Poster Collective, AIDS Video Activism, Retake and others.
The seminars draw from current research and practical concerns about the material legacies of various art and film collectives from the 1980s in the UK and Ireland, each of whom worked from anti-imperialist, anti-racist, queer and/ or feminist positions. The materials that remain include video tapes, recordings, posters, documents and other ephemera and may not yet have found an appropriate archive or collection for their preservation however are now increasingly part of contemporary discourse.’
Tapes Under the Bed takes place from 9:30 – 17:15 at Lecture Hall, EQ002, East Quad , City Campus, School of Art and Design, TU Dublin, Grangegorman, D07H6K8, Ireland.
The Project Arts Centre event takes place from 18:00 – 19:00.
New album Swoontide from Cormorant Tree Oh, a multi-disciplinary artist and musician from Dublin.
