Violence - and the threat of it- is a pre-political manner of communication and control. Since the beginning of time, man has depended on weapons to impose hierarchy of some kind in his surroundings and society (and fundamentally to undermine equality).
From the axe over 1.5 million years ago to today's killer drones, mankind's use of weapons has been varied and incredibly inventive. Weapons have changed history and helped in the rise and fall of civilizations. For example, gunpowder, a Chinese invention, led to the development of cannons and guns—revolutionizing warfare in the Middle Ages and beyond. In the last century aerial weapons and the atomic bomb altered the course of the second world war and of the globe’s history; shifting the way battles are fought and won, and leading to the unmanned aerial vehicles used nowadays.
Weapons are not limited to inflicting bodily harm, they are also used to obtain power, [...]

There is the 6th mass extinction.
There is the Anthropocene.
There is eco-sexuality and the hippie revival of living sustainable.
There are city-farms, organic markets, crowdfunding campaigns for new forests and recycled clothing.
From farm to table, detox-treatments, self-sustainable off-the-grid communities etc.
Why has our connection to nature become so mediated?
Why do we have to pass by statistics and theories to become aware of our own disconnect?
And since when did the Internet become a necessary portal to reach an Instagram-worthy refound and pure connection to [...]

Das Project Arts Centre zeigt im Zuge der Austellung Colourless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously Alessandro Balteo-Yazbecks Video Installation Chronoscope, 1951, 11pm.
An international group exhibition that delves into the story how 24 Orthodox icons came to be housed in the collection of the National Gallery of Ireland. Purchased in Istanbul by a British Diplomat in the early 1920’s during the fall out of World War One and the Russian Revolution, the paintings found their way to Ireland in the 1960’s.
The exhibition explores the ideas emanating from this story, of countries dissolved and populations dispersed, meditating on the role that arts plays in the times of upheaval.
