An evening of films and performance curated by Anneliese Klein, with performances by Gordon Douglas.
Anneliese Klein is a conceptual artist who draws cross-cultural dynamics and experiences to produce work that critically question the role and perspective of a voyeuristic citizen and audience. She is trained under Coco Fusco in her radical socio-political critique and approach. Previous artist apprenticeships have led Anneliese to explore issues of race, gender, gentrification, sex, power, and what it means to be an outsider. She has collaborated with various artists in matters of linguistics and exploring what it means to successfully communicate between two different individuals. Her work spans photography, poetry, pose, performance and mask-making. Her most recent performances include The Alien Interloper, Hair Exercises, and The Midtown Tour. Anneliese’s performances have been featured at the Ruhlman Conference, Wellesley College along with various publications.
Gordon Douglas is a performance artist and independent curator based in Glasgow. He works in close partnership with groups and organizations towards deconstructing the acts of performance, education and collaboration within institutional habit. He graduated from the Environmental Art department at Glasgow School of Art in 2013, and attended an exchange semester at CalArts, California. From 2013-15, he served on the Transmission committee, co-instigating a series of workshops aimed at interrogating the governing documents of the institution. Since then he has jointly conceived of projects and events with a diverse array of practitioners including: anthropologists, dermatologists, curators, fanfiction writers, jewellers, journalists, physicists, post-punk musicians and theatre-makers.
