Gavin Butt chairs a panel discussion which aims to interrogate the term ‘camp’ and consider its relevance to contemporary art.
Chris Sharp, Ellen Feiss and Daniel Sinsel form the panel, exploring the word ‘camp’ has become part of a language available for all, and been pacified into something more akin to humour.
A Screen Social Music vs Film mashup night, this time featuring award-winning animated films, music videos and more!
Including a selection of shortlisted and winning entries from The Van d’Ors’ animation category, this promises to be a night full of film, music, chat and drinks!
Bargehouse undergoes yet another magical transformation, this time into an Earth-based embassy for a ‘Republic of the Moon’ – filled with artists’ fantastical imaginings.

Featuring works by Liliane Lijn, Leonid Tishkov, Katie Paterson, Agnes Meyer-Brandis, WE COLONISED THE MOON and other amazing artists.
