Info: An online film screening about political histories, labour and resistance, featuring works by Veronika Eberhart, Giorgi Gago Gagoshidze, Wendelien van Oldenborgh and Monika Uchiyama. This event forms part of the public programme for the current exhibition Kristina Benjocki: At sunset we retreat once again, up the hill, to where we can watch the skeins of water reflect colours we’ve never seen before at IKOB. Focusing on textile production as a vehicle for re-examining dominant historical narratives, Kristina Benjocki’s exhibition is a poetic interrogation of how textiles and the very practice of weaving intersect with technological progress, national histories, and the construction of cultural identity. The selection of films places a particular focus on the arising themes of labour and industry and the relationship between human bodies and machines. The works reflect on the changing nature of labour structures, suggesting that the transition to a capitalist, post-industrial economy is an ongoing struggle that continues to demand and provoke political resistance. The screening includes a short introduction to Kristina Benjocki’s exhibition, and is followed by a Q&A with the artists Kristina Benjocki, Veronika Eberhart, Wendelien van Oldenborgh and Monika Uchiyama.
