MULTIPLEXING uses the architecture of a multiplex cinema as the site for a conversation between seven new works. By allowing full access for the viewer to move between the six screens of the cinema, the event reconstitutes the industrial structure of the multiplex as portmanteau – seven works as one work. A commissioned text by Mike Sperlinger and cinema poster by Shakeeb Abu Hamdan are also integral parts of the live event, expanding the space of the screen, not only in terms of composition, but also of collaboration.
This event is the first in a series of presentations of MULTIPLEXING.
