Film Screening and Conversation with Oraib Toukan

On Wednesday July 22 we are delighted to be welcoming artist Oraib Toukan to speak about her work, in particular When Things Occur: a 'desktop film' based on Skype conversations with Gaza inhabitants over the summer of 2014. This powerful and topical film probes the face of mourning and grief – its digital embodiment, transmission, and representation. It asks how the gaze gets channeled within the digital realm, how empathy travels, who is 'local' in the representation of war, and what it means to view suffering 'at a distance'.

The film will be made available ahead of the event via a protected Vimeo link for all those who register.
