MONTHLY TALK – GRAHAM HARWOOD
Thursday 4 August 2011
Talks on digital art, culture and film on the first Thursday of the month
Step behind the scenes and get a glimpse of the thinking motivating the digital world’s greatest artists, thinkers and doers.
Graham Harwood is one of the most significant names in media art. Together with his long-term collaborator Matsuko Yokokoji, he co founded the artistic collective Mongrel in 1995, who created powerful artworks addressing race, identity and politics. Their collaborative work fuses art, electronic media and street culture, and reaches beyond the hierarchies of power and knowledge to involve those normally excluded from expression and collaboration. Their recent works, which explore the socio-historical context of technology, include the transmediale prize winning project, Tantalum Memorial, and Coal Fire Computers, exhibited at the 2010 AV Festival.
Their works have been nominated for a BAFTA award and are affiliated to the permanent collections of the Pompidou Centre Paris and the Centre for Media Arts (ZKM) in Karlsruhe.
This talk marked something a return for Harwood, who was born in Brighton.
