If You Could Change the World at Last
*Exhibition, Film Screenings, Discussion
15 November-19 December 2008
Goethe-Institute Ireland, 37 Merrion Square, Dublin 2
The social revolt of 1968 was an international phenomenon that occurred simultaneously in just about every country in the world and, as it evolved, became increasingly interlinked internationally.
On the 40th anniversary of the events of the 1968 movement, the Goethe-Institut Irland is proud to announce the opening of a group exhibition, film programme and the launch of a publication as part of the project If You Could Change the World at Last 1968-2008. The purpose of the project is to celebrate, remember and interrogate the events of 1968 and the changes it effected worldwide.
The exhibition brings together artists who have responded to the invitation to exhibit work relating to 1968, the legacy of ’68 and the state of protest today.
Three Irish artists have produced new work to be shown for the first time in this exhibition. Declan Clarke will show a new film based on recent research into revolution and revolution makers. Seamus Nolan will be exhibiting Every action will be judged on the particular circumstances (2008) in Project Arts Centre based on recent anti-war action taken in Shannon Airport against American military aircraft. Musician Si Schroeder has provided an essay and new work for the exhibition. The American based Austrian artist Heidrun Holzfeind will travel to Ireland especially for the exhibition and show a recent work relating to the 1968 protests in Mexico City (interviews and photographs). US artist Anne Angyal, who is exhibiting in Ireland for the first time, and Almut Linde from Berlin, who recently finished a residency in IMMA, will show large photographs which show areas in which the protest and social movements brought about social and intellectual changes.
The publication comprises essays from journalists, writers and intellectuals from Bolivia, Germany, Ireland, Mexico and the United States. They bring together various strands from global development originating from the year 1968 and their relevance to today’s world is brought together and reflected in their diversity.
A series of films by German filmmaker Alexander Kluge with his central topics of protest, self-determination and emancipation will be screened in the Goethe-Institut as part of the project (15 November – 18 December 2008).
At the opening event one of his groundbreaking films from 1968 “Die Artisten in der Zirkuskuppel: ratlos” / “The Artists in Ring: Perplexed” will be presented.
It will be followed by a round table discussion by the artists, chaired by Willie White, Project Arts Centre, and a party.
The exhibition is curated by Jonathan Carroll, Mark Garry and Georgina Jackson.
The project is organised by the Goethe-Institut Irland, Project Arts Centre and the Austrain Embassy Dublin.
Opening Hours at Goethe: Tuesday- Thursday 10 am-8 pm, Friday- Saturday 10 am-1.30 pm
Project Gallery has longer more regular opening hours.
