Wrong Theatre


The bold, shameless films of Gunvor Nelson and Dorothy Wiley, the anxious animations of Martha Colburn, the ingenious visions of Jorge Lorenzo Flores and the strange worlds of Christopher Cogan reveal cracks in the expected roles and gestures of the media, advertising and pornography; they parody the use of bodies and portray strange actions that configure a wrong theatre. These are disinfectant films that disfigure and compulsively corrupt mediatized representations of popular culture to create a unique, disturbing filmic world. Attended by Christopher Cogan.
