Strangelove: moving image festival presents a screening of Identity and Politics.
This selection of work under the title Identity and Politics is in two parts and represent different ways that artists deal with their view of the world.
Artists working in moving image are asking the same questions that all artist deal with, who we are, where we are and why we are. In this section there are a number of artists that include an in-depth view of the artist Katherine Araniello who deals directly with her condition in a straight forward, confrontational and humorous way. It also includes artists that deal with the body and the mind. In the selection by SHAPE, the disability arts organization, are works that represent different and diverse ways that moving image is used to record and to examine not only how we see ourselves but how others see us.
In the second section curated by Vassiliki Tzanakou and Marta Cacciavillani we see artists who deal with philosophy, trauma, war and underwater choreography, an unusual but captivating mix of real life and animation.
