Abstract or Description:

The Feeling of Being (co-curated with Mihaela Brebenel and Nikolaus Perneczky) brought together contemporary artist-filmmakers along a critical trajectory straddling representation and embodiment. The selected works drew apart the human body laying bare the violence at the heart of being a “subject” but also the inherent promise of “new becomings”. By siding with “the grasped, the enframed, the taken, the kept” (Fred Moten), the films gesture towards our mutual entanglement and vulnerability. The programme sought to find unforeseeable and forgotten answers to the question: what does it feel like to become – an object?

With films by Ben Balcom, Hannah Black, Wu Tsang, Sky Hopinka and Neïl Beloufa. Supported by Arts Council England.
