Thank you to everyone who joined us last week for a screening of Audre Lorde, The Berlin Years 1984–1992, a documentary by Dagmar Schultz, selected by Park McArthur. Lorde (1934-92) was as a radical feminist, writer and advocate for social justice and has been an important influence on McArthur's work. Due to popular demand we will be holding another screening of the film on Saturday 2 April at 3pm. For more information and to book a place please click here. Photos are by Manuela Barczewski.

Please join us on Thursday 31 March, 7pm for a new work by Shen Xin, presented as part of our 21st Century programme. Shen is working with practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism to produce a live event as the prologue to a new moving image work. In this new piece, Shen examines the practice of Tibetan Buddhism in Europe in relation to what she regards as afflictions of contemporary capitalism’s relationship with power, specifically appropriation, objectification and exploitation.
