An evening of artists’ film and video works to inform and inspire ahead of the Phoenix City symposium exploring the discourse around UK City of Culture.

The selected works from UK and international artists take divergent approaches to the subject of place, offering nuanced critiques of how place is measured, re-branded, disappeared or defended.

The programme features Anja Kirschner’s part satirical sci-fi, part soap opera and part Brechtian ‘Lehrstücke’ Polly II; Mike Stubbs seminal and controversial Cultural Quarter, exposing the gaps between developers’ dreams and citizens’ perceptions of what cultural space means; to John Skoog’s exploration of Californian locations once used by the Hollywood film industry as stand-ins for other places in the world, in his 16mm film Shadowland.

The full programme includes works by:

Matthijs de Bruijne
Anja Kirschner
John Skoog
Neil Gray
Choi Sai-Ho
Mike Stubbs
Chris Paul Daniels & Sam Meech

The event is the first part of the Phoenix City Convergence to be followed by full-day symposium on Saturday October 26th, which will explore what UK City of Culture can mean for Coventry. Read details about the symposium here.

It is recommended to attend both the screening programme and symposium.

This event is presented by Duncan Whitley as a part of his Coventry Biennial Residency at Coventry University’s School of Media and Performing Arts. Duncan is an artist based in Coventry.
