For J.G.Ballard, Television was the ‘hardware of the twentieth century’ that determined the software -namely people. Through television, politics became a branch of advertising, fantasy a substitute for human contact, usurping reality for a fiction. Loosely using Ballard’s work as a theme, and responding to the exhibition Remote Control the ICA Student Forum curate a late night screening of short films. They look at censorship and surveillance, and consider how analogue media influenced society and shaped the future we now live in.
This event is initiated by Seth Pimlott, Jane Scarth, Ruth Sweeney and Rodney Uhler, members of the ICA’s Student Forum. To book tickets to the event please visit the ICA’s website.
