Clear Away the Rubble / Glan an Spallaí ar Shiúl is an open research project about housing, one of the most critical issues conditioning the lives of artists and others in Dublin, and Ireland, today. Clear Away the Rubble / Glan an Spallaí ar Shiúl is an exercise in ‘learning in public’, the first iteration of a multi-year programme about housing, that will try to find routes in to the questions that surround it from a wide range of perspectives, including those of artists, scholars and activists.

The project kicks off with a screening programme organised in collaboration with AEMI. The selected works consider a range of ideas: housing activism, conditions in which people are living, home, utopian/dystopian ideas underpinning planning and development, and the financialistion and commodification of housing.

Stay tuned for the announcement of further public programme events.


All films in the screening programme will be captioned.
