Exhibition | Mathaf Screening of Raqs Media Collective
Location: Cinema Room, Fire Station
Opening: 06 July, 2019 at 6:30pm
Exhibition will run for one day

How do we understand our place in the world and the wider cosmic universe? In this ambiguous moment in which questions of time, resources, economies, the movement of people, and reliance on digital technologies filter into daily life, how to position this contemporary experience in relation to our past and future selves?

The protagonist in Strikes at Time (2011) escapes his exhaustion, isolation, and sense of lost time by listing the mundane activities of his labouring day.

This event takes place as part of the exhibition Raqs Media Collective: Still More World, on view at Mathaf until July 31st. The screening will be followed by a conversation with artist Shuddhabrata Sengupta and exhibition curators Laura Barlow and Lina Ramadan, and an open Q&A.
