The battle for hearts and minds starts here.

How does culture become a weapon of warfare? How is a Britney Spears song connected to a global network of secret prisons? How does radical philosophy become military strategy?

In a cabin built from the same materials as Camp X-Ray, the temporary detention facility at Guantanamo bay, and with the same internal dimensions of a detainee’s cell, Extraordinary Rendition is a piece for one person at a time that uses video, sound and live performance to interrogate the kind of colonisation that begins with the battle for hearts and minds.

This is a 15-minute performance for 1 person at a time, booking required.

Please note that this performance contains flashing lights.

This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
