Across three chapters with the same characters that all end in a car crash, The Scar tells its story from the position of the female passenger, Yenge. Through her journey, we begin to address corrupt systems that hold power, explore ways to ‘get out’ of the car and begin to imagine an alternative society no longer dominated by patriarchy.

Directed by Noor Afhan Mirza and Brad Butler
Noor Afshan Mirza and Brad Butler’s work engages with contradictions of inequality, power, privilege and (non) participation and until recently took the form of a fictional institution: The Museum of Non-Participation (2008-2016). Their collaboration spans moving image, installation, workshops, sound, text and performed actions.
Differentiating between work made ‘in’ struggle and work made about struggle they take up an expanded notion of how to think politics with and through the body. Mirza and Butler work in an international context and are interested in expanded notions of art that turn to such areas as state violence and forced disappearance, the ectoplasm of neoliberalism and women’s bodies as sites of resistance.
