SOMETHING HUMAN AT THE TERMINAL
DURATION: Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October 2013
LOCATION: 47/49 Tanner Street, London, SE1 3PL and St Christopher’s at the Village.
The Terminal is a three-day durational live art project created by Something Human for PUSH 2013.
With reference to Marc Augé’s notion of ‘non-spaces’, and the holding areas at border crossings around the world, the project examines spaces of constraints, limbo and in-betweenness, and their impact on the processes of art-making.
From Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October 2013, The Terminal unfolds between and within a three-storey warehouse in Bermondsey, a hostel in London Bridge, and their immediate surrounds where ten international artists from different backgrounds, will live and make performance together, under constant surveillance and restrictive conditions.
Along with a curated programme of talks, panel discussions and moving image works, The Terminal offers an inquiry into ‘live’ performance, contemporary notions of non-spaces, and the intersection between the public and the private.
