The Right to Flight is the summer project at Bold Tendencies, flying a balloon over London, researching and investigating flight, surveillance, networks, cities and utopia. As part of the project, a series of discussions are taking place over the summer, led by James Bridle.
Jananne Al-Ani is a London-based, Iraqi-born artist. She works with photography, film and video, and her recent series Shadow Sites documents an ongoing interest in the landscape of the Middle East, its archaeology and its visual representation in the West through the technology of modern warfare.
Mishka Henner is a Manchester-based artist whose work employs satellite and aerial imagery appropriated from technologies such as Google Maps, as well as other photographic interventions. His series No Man's Land represents isolated women occupying the margins of southern European environments, shot entirely within Google Street View, resulting in an unsettling reflection on surveillance, voyeurism and the contemporary landscape.
Part of a series of evening discussions led by James Bridle on the themes of The Right To Flight. All events are free but please register for attendance.
