Previously at the ICA - Films
17 Apr 2007 – 1 May 2007
Further exploring the concerns of moving image work in The Secret Public exhibition, the ICA presents a series of screenings showing works made by artists for whom the gathering and disseminating of information has critical and political imperatives.
'One of the most important videos about AIDS' said critic Douglas Crimp about Bright Eyes, an explication of the relationship between representation and prejudice. It is also a manifesto, documentary and information film. Utilising peculiar re-enactments and a parallel with the rise of Nazism, it addresses the appalling institutional and personal intolerance and ignorance of what was already a definitive epidemic.
