Embedded Souths – An on-line moving image exhibition

Crazy World, Crazy Faith - Andrew Esiebo (Nigeria)

Clark House Initiative is co-hosting Embedded Souths , an online moving image exhibition examining particular cultural phenomena, within the complex social geographies of those who identify with a ‘south’.

‘Embedded South(s) is screened across three continents, from 3-6 November 2016, showcasing the work of 29 artists from South Asia, South East Asia, Latin America, and Africa.

The curators determine ‘south’ as a geo-political terminology that labels a particular ‘tropic’, often economically considered ‘developing’ and culturally suffering the trauma of coloniality. However, they also understand this ‘south’ to be a mobile entity in its diaspora, with many ‘souths’ now in transference within the global flows of migration (forced, voluntary, political, or economic). ‘Embedded South(s)’ seeks to share a window, through film, via four differing themes, over four separate evenings:

This online exhibition is screening four sessions titled ‘MYTHOLOGY’, ‘SOCIOLOGY SCIENCE AND COLlECTIVE MEMORY’, ‘MATERIALITY’ and ‘SPECIAL FEATURE: VIETNAM
