RECOGNIZABLY HUMAN / PART 1
EPFC | September 2nd, 2015
Hello, September! New month means welcoming a new guest curator to MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS, our weekly online-only screening series where we bring in a new film/video artist each month to bring a bit of super-cool cinema into your Facebook feed every Monday. Please join us in welcoming to the curatorial helm…
IAN ALAN PAUL!!
Ian is a transdisciplinary artist/theorist working in the interstices of aesthetics, politics, intervention, and technology. His projects have engaged with a large variety of topics including the Mexico-U.S. border region, the Guantanamo Bay Prison, Fortress Europe, the Zapatista communities, Drones, and most recently with post-revolution/post-coup Egypt. Using documentary forms, critical fiction, hacktivism, performance, and simulation, Ian’s work simultaneously seeks to disturb, defamiliarize and explicate institutional practices of violence. As of February 2015, the FBI can neither confirm nor deny the presence of Ian’s name on any watch lists.
And now, time to watch a short film he made: “Recognizably Human / Part 1” https://vimeo.com/44631867 (If you have trouble understanding the voice, you can turn subtitles on by clicking the CC button to the right of the play bar)
