THIS IS PRIVATE
26 September - 6 December 2018
The first of Free Word’s new themed Seasons, championing the next generation of artists alongside today’s most exciting voices, taking on urgent topics of our time through unique formats.
Privacy is rooted in contradiction for us all. We need personal space to be individual, yet we must share our space to be part of a community. In an era of social media, surveillance and censorship, who willingly gives away their right to privacy, and whose rights are taken away? From the surveillance of vulnerable communities to a nation’s private shame, secret taboos to the censoring of female bodies, THIS IS PRIVATE probes a little deeper into our public lives and private fears through performance, film, poetry, visual art, debate, discussion, workshops and more.
