Past Event


This event was on Thu 28 Mar 2019, 7pm

On the eve of great change (or not) we present visions of an alternative Britain – past and future – through the insurgent analogue film practices of Stanley Schtinter and Susu Laroche, and accompanied by the remarkable sonic melancholies of Adam Christensen, performing live in the auditorium.

This evening will feature a selection of their collaborative pieces, with their respective visual and sonic ‘anti-works’: including films made by Laroche with performance duo New Noveta, and the ‘endless’ films of Schtinter, with the first look at his ‘un-documentary’ on Princess Diana’s second funeral (a word-for-word recreation was held by the artist in Salford in 2018).

Screenings are followed by a Q&A with Laroche, Schtinter and Whitechapel Gallery’s Adjunct Film Curator Gareth Evans, with the evening concluding in a short performance by artist Adam Christensen (who appears in Laroche’s Nasty Piece Of Work).

Please be advised that there is image ‘flicker’ at regular points throughout the programme.

A free ‘Revolutionary Stamp’ will be available to ticket holders.

This event also launches Schtinter’s ‘Directory Of Did It Happen’.

A sister event will follow on Friday 29 March at REDON on Cambridge Heath Road.

This event is included in our Thursday Lates offer: book your ticket for the event together with admission for Is This Tomorrow? and save £4.95/£1.50 concs, plus receive a free drink at the Whitechapel Refectory.

His 2018 recreation of Princess Diana’s funeral (with a Mexican mariachi band in Salford) was widely celebrated as “the people’s vote Turner Prize winner”, and hailed by London Review of Books, The Guardian, The Daily Star and more. He also runs the anti-record label (anti-everything), purge.xxx.
