Working Worlds is going online on Wednesday 22 April at 20.00!
While the corona virus is creating a new reality around us, MU has found a way to virtually lead you into an array of alternative worlds. Especially now, imaginary worlds can be a relief. But the queer, utopian, dystopian, germinating, irreconcilable worlds that are disclosed by MU as Worlding Worlds from 22 April to 30 August, offer more than just distraction. In a choir of critical and upbeat voices, thirteen artists and designers question dominant views, opposing them with unexpected possibilities and creating the space that can be hard to find in society as we know it.
We open with the film Worlding Worlds, about the exhibition as it has been installed in MU. Impressions of the thirteen works on show alternate with fragments from the interviews we held with the participating artists for this online presentation in particular.
Simultaneously we launch a series of videos on MU's Worlding Worlds Vimeo channel: thee original works in the exhibition or impressions created especially for Worlding Worlds. In the coming weeks we will show the full interviews with the artists as well.
Participating artists: Ainslee Alem Robson, Andrew Thomas Huang, Baum & Leahy, David OReilly, Ian Cheng, Joanie Lemercier, Kordae Jatafa Henry, Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley (@ladydangfua), Liam Young, Mehraneh Atashi, Stéphane Borel, Soft Bodies (Paula Strunden & John Cruwys),Viviane Komati.
Worlding World is curated by Angelique Spaninks
