Resist Psychic Death

Friday 12 August 2016 to Sunday 11 September 2016, 11:00 to 18:00
Free

An expanded exhibition inviting audiences to question and discuss the history and future of punk.

"Your world not mine Your world not ours
Your world not mine Your world not ours
I will resist with every inch and every breath
I will resist this psychic death
I will resist with every inch and every breath
I will resist this psychic death
There's more than two ways of thinking
There's more than one way of knowing
There's more than two ways of being
There's more than one way of going somewhere" - Resist Psychic Death, Bikini Kill 

 

As the Moving Target’s season progresses, the space inside Arnolfini will gradually transform, and under the title Resist Psychic Death evidence and remnants of the programme’s activities will accumulate. Ephemera, photographs and traces of our punk past will be brought together alongside contributions from Moving Targets artists and participants.



The artists brought together in Resist Psychic Death all relate in some way to the idea of punk — often to it's edges or margins, to the parts that have been overlooked and deserve reconsideration, or to punk's future — what it could mean now and whether it can be a useful tool or approach to question the world we live in. What unites all the contributions is the use of disruption, instability, provisionality and resistance as strategies to communicate and give voice to urgent issues and ideas.

Resist Psychic Death invites audiences to question both the history and future of punk by participating in artist-led workshops, live radio shows and open discussions.

Join us for an in-gallery zine-making workshop throughout the summer with Agency : Make your Mark instigated by Rachael House, creator of the autobiographical queerzine Red Hanky Panky. 

Contributors:

Feminist Archive South, Bristol Archive Records, Gillian Wylde, Young Arnolfini, Phoebe Davies, UWE Graphic Design, Jenny Moore, Charismatic Megafauna, gal-dem, Rachael House  

Join in the conversation using #bristolpunk.
