Video of Invisible Forces at Furtherfield Gallery June 16th 2012.


This video was taken at Invisible Forces opening event at Furtherfield 
Gallery, Finsbury Park. Video by Pablo Robertson de Unamuno

Featuring artists: Class Wargames, Kimathi Donkor, The Hexists, Laura 
Oldfield Ford, IOCOSE, Dave Miller, Edward Picot, Olga P Massanet & 
Thomas Cade Aston, and YoHa (Graham Harwood & Matsuko Yokokoji).

Our social, economic and cultural institutions are being dismantled. 
Control over the provision of social care, urban and rural development, 
and education is being ceded to the market facilitated by unseen 
technological and bureaucratic systems.

Undeterred, the artists in this exhibition meet the challenges that 
ensue with clear eyes, spontaneity, experimentation and a sense of 
adventure. This selection of installations, digital video, net art, 
painting and drawings deal with conspiracy, money, politics and hidden 

As we scan our cultures for maps, role-models, possible ways of living 
in today's world, we often encounter images of society that are created 
by its hidden, controlling forces. By naming, revealing, tracking, 
playing, making, subverting and transforming tools, circumstances and 
figures that give rise to current crises we enlarge the debate and 
extend our freedoms. And the artists in this exhibition offer examples 
of just some of the ways in which this might be done.
