Qaaf Laam in the Chatroom

In an attempt to think together about what it means to work together, Engy Mohsen and Sarah Maher (Chatrooms) and Qaaf Laam Collective invite you to join them in an open discussion about collaboration as a process that might allow us to think about our ‘subjectivity’ in relation to work, imagine alternative collectivities, and create the critical work conditions we aspire for.

Night - By Gian Spina

The film analyzes the themes and concepts addressed in the work made by the artist Rodrigo Brum for the Artist At Work exhibition. In the film and article Brum shapes questions he had raised over the last years on what he calls the colonization of the night, its relation with the enhancement of productivity, end of sleep,alienation and the usage of multiple disciplines and technologies to hijack this space which previously was deprived from production and consumerism. Through this film Gian tries to deepen the questions raised by Brum during his long and unfinished research. This conversation allows us to understand nuances contained in his work and which might have passed unnoticed to the public.

Gian Spina - Born in São Paulo, Brazil is a writer, researcher and works sometimes as an artist. Has taught in places as International Art Academy Palestine, Escola da Cidade (São Paulo) and the Ionion Center for Arts and Culture (Greece). Today he learns Arabic, speaks five other languages and is constructing an interdisciplinary body of work on the materialization of power in the public sphere.
