Sara Hamadeh - A Refusing Machine
performance: 07 / 12 / 2017
On Thursday 7 December at 20: 00 hour, Sara Hamadeh will give a lecture performance in TENT. While hundreds of amateur videos of military aircraft and drones appear above Syria online every day, Sara Hamadeh sketches a picture of recent military history in which politics, technology and popular culture turn out to be interwoven. In this 'lecture-performance' she combines storytelling with archive materials and media images to make a connection between air war, the cockpit and the human role.
Sara Hamadeh (Lebanon) is an artist and researcher with a background in film sciences. In her research she focuses on images of war and the power politics behind the production and distribution of those images on the internet.
A Refusing Machine is part of the lively public program that runs parallel to the group exhibition Going Back To Forget takes place. More information and tickets on the TENT website.
