People who have saved this event:


Throughout April and May 2020 Gasworks presents a series of online screenings of artist films commissioned for our exhibitions programme over the last few years.


Al Qadiri's science fiction video and audio work reference the artist’s childhood in Kuwait. Revisiting the fantasies that she and her sister elaborated during these early years, Al Qadiri depicts the culture and rituals of diplomacy in which they grew up. In the work, their otherworldly depictions become a somehow humorous way to understand the more recent rise of nationalism and political populism.
