About

Civilized? takes it title from the essay Infinitely Detained by Judith Butler, who explored the decisions made by governments in a bid to legitimise violence.The notion of what constitutes an action civilized will be unpacked through film, sculpture and painting in the exhibition. Each artist endeavours to propose their own responses, not solely looking at war and violence, but looking further into our society and what touches us to make art.

“A population of Islamic peoples, or those taken to be Islamic, become visually rounded up, stared down, hounded and monitored by a group of citizens who understand themselves as foot soldiers in the war against terrorism.” Judith Butler cited in Infinitely Detained, 2014
