A new three-week film installation as part of Clear Away the Rubble / Glan an Spallaí ar Shiúl
aemi is delighted to collaborate with Project Arts Centre to present a curated programme of films as part of Clear Away the Rubble / Glan an Spallaí ar Shiúl, an open research project about housing, one of the most critical issues conditioning the lives of artists and others in Dublin, and Ireland, today.
Clear Away the Rubble / Glan an Spallaí ar Shiúl is an exercise in ‘learning in public’, the first iteration of a multi-year programme about housing, that will try to find routes in to the questions that surround it from a wide range of perspectives, including those of artists, scholars and activists.
The screening programme, featuring works by Eva Richardson McCrea, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Dianne Murphy and Ben Thorp Brown, runs on a loop for the first three weeks of the project until 14 May. The selected works consider a range of ideas: housing activism, conditions in which people are living, home, utopian/dystopian ideas underpinning planning and development, and the financialisation and commodification of housing.
