'The Known Unknowns' - 4 hours continues reading at Whitechapel Gallery

The Known Unknowns is a scheduled cycle of continuous readings running parallel to Volatile Dispersal: Festival of Art Writing, an evening organised by Maria Fusco and Book Works at Whitechapel Gallery.
The festival reflects on the materialisation and dematerialisation of art writing through six newly commissioned works by
Adam Chodzko, Ruth Ewan, Babak Ghazi, Beatrice Gibson, Nathaniel Mellors and Gail Pickering.

The aim of
The Known Unknowns is to gather an interesting number of contributors to publicly read extracts or entire sections of their own texts.
The fluidity and the continuity of the act of reading-aloud will unveil a focus on both the singular texts and the whole reading as a unique entity.
This constant balance between singularity and plurality will also produce an interesting tension with the six commissioned intervention happening around the Whitechapel Gallery.

'Film as a Subversive Art' - Playlists

Francesco Pedraglio's playlist "The camera has an angry eye"

A project devised by Supercream for the LUX site in parallel to 'Film As A Subversive Art' at Zoo Art Fair 2009.

Supercream has invited a selection of artists, curators and writers to construct a playlist of online videos and links that will outline their position in relation to the idea of subversion.

Emerging from different cultural and generational backgrounds, the participants implement the exhibition by broadening the field of discussion, raising new problematics, interpretations and perspectives.

Playlists will be uploaded regularly throughout October 2009, on both and on the LUX site.
