MAH Film Night: Radical Futurisms (Part I Rescreen)
April 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm |
Gather ’round your home screen and watch films from a diverse group of visionaries on topics and themes related to our current exhibition, Beyond the World’s End.
Join curator TJ Demos for a virtual introduction and (re)screening of films originally shown last month at the Del Mar Theater that seek to offer points of light in a dark world.
How are visual artists imagining radical futures? How can the traditions of oppressed peoples become the foundation of the future? How can social justice and ecosystems flourish going forward? How can we escape our current climate of catastrophe and anxiety and instead transform the present into a radical future by asking what is “not-yet”?
Shown in conjunction with our exhibition Beyond the World’s End, this three-part film series is part of a year-long research and exhibition project and public lecture series. Directed by T. J. Demos of the Center for Creative Ecologies, and including the collaboration of UCSC PhD Mellon fellows Isabelle Carbonell and Chessa Adsit-Morris, it brings leading international thinkers and cultural practitioners to UC Santa Cruz to discuss what lies beyond dystopian catastrophism, and how we can cultivate radical futures of social justice and ecological flourishing. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation John E. Sawyer Seminar on the Comparative Study of Culture. For more information visit BEYOND.UCSC.EDU
