We are happy to announce that following on from ‘โลก(ไร้ )รู ป (Im)material worlds’ last year, reflections on learnings from the programme have been published in MIRAJ: Moving Image Review & Art Journal. In memory of Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa (1976 – 2023).
Organised by Graiwoot Chulphongsathorn (Chulalongkorn University), Philippa Lovatt (University of St Andrews), LUX Scotland and CAMPLE LINE, funded by the British Council, ‘โลก(ไร้ )รู ป (Im)material worlds’ was an artists’ moving image programme that gave focus to the environmental crisis from Global South and postcolonial perspectives. It brought together recent and new moving image work by four Southeast Asian and four UK-based artists and filmmakers, who use experimental and essayistic forms to explore communities, habitats and places through their colonial, political, military and environmental histories. The programme unfolded over eight weeks with paired online screenings and hosted dialogue with the filmmakers each fortnight, and included artists Alia Syed, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Emilia Beatriz, Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Maeve Brennan, Nguyễn Trinh Thi, Prapat Jiwarangsan and Shireen Seno.
