Broadcast is a Dublin-based gallery set in Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) School of Art.Programmed by a team of DIT staff members - including Mark Garry, Ronan McCrea, Linda Quinlan and Jesse Jones - Broadcast enables a situation in which criticality and learning are fluidly integrated into the educational process. Programmed workshops and lectures parallel the concerns of the artist presenting work, with a specific focus on concepts of knowledge and how artists occupy the space of research. A recent presentation of Anja Kirschner's film POLLY II (2006) prompted a conversation between the artist and Maeve Connolly, creating an opportunity to discuss the politics of speculative development and artists' strategies within commissioning processes.
