An Evening with Broomberg & Chanarin

Eye programmer Anna Abrahams talks with Oliver Chanarin.

Born in South Africa and raised in England, the artists Adam Broomberg (1970) and Oliver Chanarin (1971) trained as photographers but now work in several media. Their work addresses historical, political and religious topics in a fresh and challenging way.

impressive

Dodo (2014) centres on the representation of war. Combining archival research and archaeological excavations with unused film clips from Catch-22, the installation is an impressive work on the representation of war and the impact of the Hollywood industry on the Mexican landscape.

The evening is in English. Sadly, Adam Broomberg is unable to attend.

Combination tickets at a reduced price for An Evening with Broomberg & Chanarin and Catch-22 on 23 April can be purchased online.

A Tale of Hidden Histories

Truth, facts, memories, reality: are they all constructions? The artists Broomberg & Chanarin, Omer Fast, Chia-Wei Hsu and Meiro Koizumi deploy not only film and video but also slide projections, photographs and sound to investigate and ‘unmask’ the past.
