Syllabus Reading Group #5:
screening of Nightcleaners (1975)

Vrijdag 13 November, 20:00
Syllabus Reading Group #5
Nightcleaners (1975)

Online film screening, met een introductie door Silvia Federici en Jesse Jones

In het engels
Hosted by Art Cinema OFFoff, Universiteit Gent en Kunsthal Gent

Tijdens de week met Silvia Federici (26-29 oktober) bleek hoe relevant de thematiek van de film Nightcleaners (1975, Berwick Street Collective) is voor de huidige situatie van veel thuiswerkers, die hun baan moeten combineren met zorgtaken. De vijfde editie van de Syllabus leesgroep lezen we dan ook uitzonderlijk geen tekst, maar maakt Art Cinema OFFoff een online vertoning van deze film mogelijk. In Nightcleaners zien we schoonmaaksters met een job in de nacht en daarnaast een dayshift in zorgtaken. Deze vrouwen, Ierse migranten in het Engeland van 1972, komen toe aan twee uur slaap per nacht. De film wordt geïntroduceerd door Silvia Federici in gesprek met kunstenaar Jesse Jones.

Meer informatie over de film vindt u hier.

De Syllabus Reading Group wordt georganiseerd door Kunsthal Gent rond het werk 'Syllabus' van de Ierse kunstenaar Jesse Jones: een monumentaal gordijn met de arm van Silvia Federici, waardoor een ruimte ontstaat voor (activistische) samenkomst.

PRAKTISCH
Dit event is gratis en vindt online plaats via ZOOM.
Screening van de film gebeurt via het platform van distributeur LUX.
Na inschrijving wordt de zoomlink via e-mail verstuurd.
