Centrifugal IV

Centrifugal IV. 16- 26 April 2008

‘Centrifugal- Sequence IV', screenings, site responsive work, workshops, mobile discussions, talks.
Sezgin Boynik, Taru Elfving, Kalle Hamm, Minna L Henriksson, Nicole Hewitt, Daniel Jewesbury, Susan Kelly, Aisling O’Beirn, Platforma 9.81
''Centrifugal' brings together artists and theorists from three European cities: Helsinki, Zagreb and Belfast, all positioned in close to the borders of Europe, particularly as defined by the European Union. Focusing on the smaller centres, or “off-centres”, of artistic practice in Europe, the project draws attention away from cities such as London or Berlin, and questions persisting dichotomies such of centre-margin and global-local.

Sequence VI of Centrifugal, hosted by PS² in Belfast, takes up themes of urban typologies, touring and the remaking of post-conflict urban space. The group will show research and work made in Zagreb and Helsinki and continue its public enquiry into the various ‘peripheral’ conditions of Europe; shared histories of internal Euro-colonialism; scales of citizenship; border conditions, orientations, realignments and their impact on the urban fabric, and a ‘nationally defined’ cultural practice.
All events are free and open to the general public.
