Dissenting Desires: Artists’ Film in Eastern Europe in the 1970s and 1980s

Show Time: 6pm - 7:30pm

Screening curated and introduced by David Crowley, Head of the School of Visual Culture at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Dublin.

Life in Eastern Europe in the 1970s and 1980s was shaped in the image of the grey-suited authorities that held on to power. Sexuality and gender roles were understood in the most conventional terms. A small number of ‘underground’ artist-film-makers in the Eastern Bloc channelled their desire for difference by performing before the camera. Some of their rarely-seen works will be screened in the Cube in conjunction with the exhibition of Anna Daučíková’s work in the gallery.
