Justice not Silence

Bob Georgeson, Justice not Silence, Photomontage, 2016

This graphic has been done for the exhibition 'Your Voice' to be held in As Suwayda, Syria, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25th 2016. The exhibition is organized by UMA, an NGO supporting women. A little of the background...

A little bit of freedom
‘Under the regime of Assad this kind of activities was impossible. Now some militia groups are in control of As Suwayda side by side with the Assad regime, so there is a little bit of freedom. The police asked for the nature of this organization and they allow it,’ explains Aktham Abu Fakher, who fled Syria in 2014 because of his activities in human rights. Akthams wife, Amany Abu Daqa, organizes this exhibition on women rights. She started UMA some years ago together with some friends. All still live in As Suwayda. Akhtam doesn’t. Currently he lives in Willemstad, Curaҫao.

It is an honour to be taking part in this exhibition in a place where humanity has been forsaken...

LonDADA – Celebrating 100 Years Of Dadaism


LonDADA is the world’s first dedicated Dada festival, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Dadaism at the historic Cinema Museum in London. Join us for an evening of live performance, music, film, a video poetry recital by Brian Blessed and a programme of experimental, surreal and Dadaist shorts by Helmut Herbst, Francis Thompson, John Smith and Bob Georgeson.

On June 23rd 1916, German poet Hugo Ball performed his poem “Karawane” at the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich and the Dada movement was born. Over the past century, Dadaism has influenced every conceivable art form, from graphic design to punk rock. Leave your expectations at the door and celebrate the Dada centenary in style at London’s historic Cinema Museum, built in a former workhouse where Charlie Chaplin was sent as a boy.

Programme

  • A video performance of Karawane by Brian Blessed, actor, adventurer, raconteur and all-round legend
  • Hans Richter’s seminal 1928 short film Ghosts Before Breakfast, with a new score composed and performed live by Austrian musician Vinzenz Stergin
  • Slapstick & Slaughter, a Dadaist theatrical performance by the amazing duo Desperate Men
  • Germany DADA: An Alphabet of German Dadaism, a 1968 documentary about Dadaism by Helmut Herbst
  • Spam Slam, an audience participation poetry slam using spam emails (bring your own or use ours)
  • Short films by award-winning British artist John Smith, experimental German director Helmut Herbst, American pioneer of cinema Francis Thompson and Australian Dadaist Bob Georgeson.
  • The musical stylings of David Goo, frontman of The 150 Friends Club.
  • A whole host of hidden surprises, waiting to be discovered by your eyeballs!
