La Ronde | A circular conversation on identity | Saturday 12 Many 2pm.

Through history, notions of identity have continuously shifted as the 
constituents have been discussed, affirmed and re-negotiated. In recent 
years, our ideas of identity appear to have become ever more complex and 
increasingly unstable. Changing patterns of migration, the legacy of 
colonisation, technological and scientific developments and gender 
issues, amongst other things, have all impacted upon our construction of 
the self.

Inspired by the structure of Arthur Schnitzler's play of 1897, La Ronde, 
the roundtable will consist of a circular series of one-on-one exchanges:

Eva and Franco Mattes > Melissa Gronlund

Melissa Gronlund > John Akomfrah

John Akomfrah > Bidisha

Bidisha > Alex Warwick

Alex Warwick > Morgan Quaintance

Morgan Quaintance > Heath Bunting

Heath Bunting > Eva and Franco Mattes

Each conversation will begin with a question that includes the word 
'identity'. The answer may take the form of a conversation, a film 
screening, a lecture, a slide show… Twenty minutes will be allotted to 
each pairing, with an extra ten minutes for audience questions.

La Ronde coincides with our current exhibition - Eva and Franco Mattes' 
Anonymous, untitled, dimensions variable. By infiltrating systems of 
information and distribution, such as mass media and the Net, the Mattes 
defy notions of safety and privacy, presenting the viewer with a 
disturbing reflection of self and society, emphasizing the multiplicity 
of personalities that construct one's identity.
