Artist Judith Barry, a pioneer of video art, discusses and screens a series of her artworks in this rare UK event. She will be joined by esteemed writer Jean Fisher and together will discuss the complexities of using the voice as a form of political representation through film, video and installation. The conversation will be led by Curator Omar Kholeif.
This talk considers questions such as, how has the voice been manipulated and contorted through media? Can the voice be considered a bearer of an ultimate truth, or as a subversive counterpoint? The discussion also considers the voice’s relationship to feminist discourses and its distribution through new technologies.
