Free in-person cinema screening in Galway
Curated by aemi to reflect upon and interact with the varied themes that arise in ‘Entanglement’, the exhibition realised for the Irish pavilion at the Architecture Biennale in Venice in 2021, this programme of films on data infrastructure and its relationship to landscape, features work by Irish and international artists Larry Achiampong, Caroline Doolin, Edy Fung, Fiona Marron, Dalibor Martinis and Frank Sweeney. Adopting a range of different registers, this programme looks to reveal the ordinarily concealed labour involved in maintaining information and communication technologies in order to explore the human, environmental and cultural cost of sustaining the – often broken, often corrupt and sometimes rogue – systems that have become part of our natural order.
