Mona Hatoum: Turbulence
mona hatoumThe exhibition Mona Hatoum: Turbulence brings to the forefront the diversity of Mona Hatoum’s work over the last 30 years. Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, the exhibition’s premise builds on the artist’s topical work Turbulence (2012), a 4 x 4 metre square composed of thousands of glass marbles laid directly onto the floor. Placed exactly at the centre of the exhibition, this installation lies at the heart of a linear but non-chronological trajectory whereby a number of unexpected juxtapositions echo the complexity through which the artist has managed to challenge, and at times disturb, our experience of the ordinary.

DFI Screening: Disconnect
disconnectA teenage loner and talented musician is bullied by his peers. A man loses his savings; his wife is a victim of identity theft. A journalist puts her interview subject in danger. And all of this happens online. The Internet now connects millions of us to each other at the mere click of a mouse – but what happens if those connections don’t turn out the way we predict they will? ‘Disconnect’ takes a look at the underside of the Internet, wondering what might be the consequences of sharing too much about ourselves with people we don’t know enough about. Newsweek magazine has called this “the best movie of the year!”. The cast includes Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton and Alexander Skarsgård.

MIA Exhibition Series – Brooklyn Castle
mia screening - brooklyn castleImagine a school where the cool kids are the chess team. Welcome to I.S. 318.‘Brooklyn Castle’ is a documentary about I.S. 318 – an inner-city New York school where more than 65 percent of students come from homes with incomes below the federal poverty level that just happens to have the best junior-high-school chess team in the country. (If Albert Einstein, whose chess rating was 1800, were to join the team, he’d only rank fifth best). Chess has transformed the school from one cited in 2003 as a “school in need of improvement” to one of New York City’s finest. But a series of recession-driven pubic-school budget cuts threaten to undermine this hard-won success. (Source: DFI)
