More events at CFA Downtown

A film essay and multimedia art installation by The Line/Assembled Collective. Runs through Feb. 7.

these are the days, my friends, these are the days’ is a film essay and multi media art installation by ‘the line/assembled collective’. It defies linear narratives, be they political, historical or personal, pointing out the interrelation of global events that not only impact and structure our daily experience, but raise questions of personal responsibility in maintaining structures of knowledge. If we begin with the sugar crisis and end with a bottle of champagne — what exactly happened in between? Can we deconstruct our ways of performing knowledge? Perhaps we can begin to find questions only when we allow all the complexities and implications to coexist.
