about


See documentaries, dramas and animations across 11 themes, including Sacrifice, Responses, Loss and Legacy. The remarkable films are made by filmmakers from across the world, from Poland and Pakistan to Syria, Hungary and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Do Not Come To Europe is a 12 minute film unearthing the current issues of displacement in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The film relays the harrowing testimonies of those fleeing conflict. It’s certainly not the media picture.

From the Syria conflict to modern terrorism and from suffragette surgeons to war art, IWM Short Film Festival presents an imaginative, edgy and challenging selection of films responding to past and contemporary conflict.

But We Are Still Here @ Tate Modern
Until 26 Nov Free

about


Tate Modern invites you to give voice to your ideas and experience, to listen to others and re-consider how culture is (re) produced through everyday behaviours and activities. The project asks difficult questions to provoke debate, reflection, comment and action.

The conversation unfolding on the Tate Exchange floor is framed by a series of photographs by Heather Agyepong to create a thought-provoking installation. Reimagined as Ghanaian Ashanti Warrior Yaa Asantewaa, Agyepong appears in a series of images that raise questions of value, ownership and erasure.

Skeletons (Or, How I Learned to Love F**** Up) @ Ovalhouse
30 Nov – 02 Dec Tickets from £5

about


Skeletons (Or, How I Learned to Love F* Up) examines society’s ‘cult of success’ in an absurd and confrontational live performance.

Expect impossible tasks, cringeworthy confessions and surreal self-help mantras in a life-coach session gone wrong.

“A hilarious send-up of the burgeoning life-coach industry” – ★★★★ – LondonTheatre1

detail

We all want to be healthier, wealthier, more successful – and we’re willing to pay for it. The self-help industry is valued at more than £6bn a year.

We live in an age of life coaches, The Secret and ‘positive thinking’. But in a society that tells us ‘belief’ is all we need to succeed, can embracing failure be a form of resistance?

Fifty women leave everything behind to board a boat in North Africa and flee across the Mediterranean. They are escaping forced marriage, hoping for protection and assistance, seeking asylum in Greece.

Written 2,500 years ago, one of the world’s oldest plays speaks to us through the ages with startling resonance for our troubled times.

Featuring a chorus of local women from London, this is part play, part ritual. Director Ramin Gray unearths an electric connection to the deepest and most mysterious ideas of humanity – who are we, where do we belong and if all goes wrong – who will take us in?

Whats On Love Is The Message 6 | www.imjussayin.com

What’s On Must See Pick

Arthur Jafa: Love is the Message, the Message is Death @ Store Studios
Until 10 Dec Free Entry

about


Love Is The Message, The Message Is Death, is an eight-minute film consisting of clips and photographs from all avenues of Black life and media in all forms. From music visuals, video art, YouTube videos, dash-cam footage and photographs, Jafa’s piece presents still visuals of the everyday reality of Black folks. Soundtracking Kanye’s, “Ultralight Beam” over raw footage (both past and present), the filmmaker also included photos of Malcolm X, Dr. King, President Obama, Beyonce, Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix and Lebron James.

Arthur Jafa exhibits Love is the Message, the Message is Death (2016) in a site-specific installation.

detail


Jafa’s work is a convergence of found footage that traces African-American identity through a vast spectrum of contemporary imagery. The meticulously edited 7-minute video jumps from photographs of civil rights leaders to helicopter views of the LA riots, suspending viewers in an emotional montage that is a testament to Jafa’s masterful ability to juxtapose and sequence footage and that poignantly embodies the artist’s desire to create a cinema that ‘replicates the power, beauty and alienation of Black Music’.

Arthur Jafa is a director, filmmaker, and cinematographer who has used his platform to promote and express Black culture through a variety of mediums.

Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11 @ IWM
Until 28 May 2018 Tickets from £15/£7.50

about


The UK’s first major exhibition of artists’ responses to war and conflict since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001. Age of Terror: Art since 9/11 will feature more than 40 British and international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Grayson Perry, Gerhard Richter, Jenny Holzer, Mona Hatoum, Alfredo Jaar, Coco Fusco and Jake & Dinos Chapman.

detail


The complex issues surrounding the global response to 9/11, the nature of modern warfare and the continuing state of emergency in which we find ourselves have become compelling subject matter for contemporary artists.

Artists’ unique ways of communicating through their art provide different levels of understanding. The stories they tell, whether first or second-hand, come from alternative viewpoints not always reflected in the mainstream media, often challenge our perceptions.

Through 50 works of art including film, sculpture, painting, installations, photography and prints, many of which will be exhibited publically in the UK for the first time, this exhibition highlights the crucial role of artists in representing contemporary conflict.
