As part of the exhibition Women Artists of the North East Library at Workplace Foundation, this screening situates Newcastle-based artist Kate Liston’s film ‘Treatment’ alongside a selection of work influential to her practice, including a live performance of ‘Mutualism’ by Tess Denman-Cleaver, written around Liston’s film.
In dialogue with Liston’s ‘Film for EBM’, Ella Bergmann-Michel’s ‘Wo Wohnen Alte Leute’, (Where the Old People Live, 1931) observes a working day in an old people’s home in Weimar Germany. Modernist architecture moves in tandem with its inhabitants and becomes a social being—a ‘living organism’. A discussion with Kate Liston, Tess Denman-Cleaver and Holly Argent will follow.
Tickets: £6/£4 concessions
