Presented by Cineworks and ECCS, this program invites us to consider the forcefulness of objects, images and sounds as building blocks for history as a narrative phenomenon, distinct from ‘the past’. As such, it presents a backdrop for understanding the forces marshaled in Geoffrey Farmer’s art practice to investigate the archive as an unstable and shifting constellation of transformative capacities, energies and impulses, most present to readers and viewers in material forms.
