DISCLOSURE: Old Words Made New.
Ethical knowledge, sacred spaces, forgotten histories and challenging 
predispositions.

Furtherfield is pleased to present the excellent cross cultural project 
DISCLOSURE: Old Words Made New'. We have collaborated with Medieval 
Studies Graduate Students from King's College London, and artist Erica 
Scourti to reversion a contemporary representation on the subject of 
medieval social lives, based on the theme of ‘ethical knowledge’ through 
Old English. With a combination of works in the Finsbury Park 
surroundings, sound installations, collaborative writing, and performance.

The question posed to the King's College students was "If we existed in 
a contemporary society where the Internet could no longer be trusted 
because of systems of networked surveillance, what would be the 
different ways in which we could communicate?"

The project is part of Colm Cille’s Spiral project, a collaboration 
between Difference Exchange, King's College London and Furtherfield, and 
takes place alongside a commission by artist Erica Scourti. It relates 
to a series of contemporary art and literature commissions and dialogues 
rethinking the legacy of 6th Century Irish monk Colm Cille, or St 
Columba, that unfolds across Ireland and the UK, starting and ending in 
Derry-Londonderry for City of Culture 2013. Kings College Students 
taking part are: Carl Kears, Kathryn Maude, Hana Videen, Victoria 
Walker, Rebecca Hardie, Francesca Allfrey.
