Please join us for a research-performance with Dennis Dizon, the winner of the first Residency Programme at Tallinn Art Hall, which is part of the large-scale cooperation project BEYOND MATTER – Cultural Heritage on the Verge of Virtual Reality, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. It is dedicated to novel, digital approaches to exhibition revival, documentation and dissemination, as well as the artistic, curatorial and museological development of the opportunities presented by virtual representation.
(e)spiritu-virtu invokes a queer approach to (an ecological) crisis. Sharing stories and encounters through (cursed) images, texts and videos, the presentation is an attempt at (a sacred) recovery from colonial history, queer trauma and ecological violence.
This event is free of charge and will take place in English. This event will be recorded.
Please register here to attend, as space is limited.
