Identity & Politics II is a curated series of immersive short films curated by Vassiliki Tzanakou which through animation, fiction and abstraction explores the interactions and impacts that contemporary societies could have on one’s identity. Artists are responding to the social phenomena of materialism, racism, imperialism, consumerism, religious fundamentalisms and individualisation and how those lead to the multiplication of fears, social exclusion, isolation, depression and violence.

STRANGELOVE is an innovative Moving Image Festival conceived and designed by artist Terry Smith (workinprogress) and curator David Gryn (Artprojx). This first edition has been devised in collaboration with and it will beeld at Central Saint Martins, which in the 1960’s became an important centre for the development of experimental film.
Using spaces throughout the Kings Cross campus the festival programme includes a mix of around 50 screenings, talks, symposiums, workshops and exhibitions featuring prominent international artists, designers, directors, screen-writers and performers, aiming to generate cross-disciplinary discussions and draw attention to the way moving image has become an inescapable part of our everyday experience. The festival will celebrate the diversity of moving image practice and explore the relationship between art, fashion, communication design, drama, performance and popular culture. The connection with performance art is also important to emphasis, both art forms share an irregular history.
