Reality Reasearch Centre video installation Jussi’s Last Tape – waypoint report No.1 has entered the realm of visual arts! To us it’s a great acheivement as we are not (yet) professionals in the field. The installation is shown in Myymälä2 art gallery in Helsinki 6.-30.4.2016. Welcome!
My post in Reality Research Center / Work Island blog is here.
I lost a big job with one theatre recently because of the governmental subsidy cuts. The blog post starts with that and continues to describe the desperate situation of freelancing in this country. Ok, everybody’s desperate these days, so where’s the beef? Ten years ago freelancers were supposed to be the model workers of the future. Today we’ve become ghosts, invisible to the trade unions and to the governement. I find it interesting. It’s a sign of the times.
Reality Research Center is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary with new web design. Graphic Design by Iina Lievonen, Programming by Tomi Dufva. Check it out and find the five different “islands” in which the artistic activities take place in 2016 and 2017.
“For 15 years Reality Research Center has stayed two steps ahead of others. This is why our performances may seem uncanny and we might stay below the popular radar. But, when a certain performative approach becomes a trend, it is probable that some of us already experimented on it. We are contemporary explorers and the outpost of the future – avant-garde of the Finnish performative arts.”
