31 Results for Investigation | Information

During KYTN 10 we organised some events that were explicitly billed as Investigations. These were situations where people coming to the festival could access, or get involved with, the processes and concepts some of the artists were using. Here we’re grouping work of that ilk along with projects that explicitly deal with information, perhaps in aesthetic or political terms. A starting point: Graham Harwood’s film lecture about aluminium and it’s place in historical, political and economic structures of power from Episode 1: A Film is a Statement or Ashley Hunt’s performed lecture/documentaryabout Hurricane Katrina.
