EVIL EYE Cinema Season

THE EVIL EYE. THE PARALLEL HISTORY OF OPTICS AND BALLISTICS EXHIBITION IS BEING ROUNDED OUT BY A FILM SERIES COMPRISED OF THREE SCREENINGS PRESENTED BY SPECIAL GUESTS

Harun Farocki, Hasan Özgür Top, Forensic Architecture, Miranda Pennell

Tabakalera
San Sebastian
February 4 – April 13

With their help, reflection on the parallel development of the history of optics and the history of ballistics is brought into the cinema so that we can dive deeper into the way in which this confluence has determined the nature of modern warfare and proven the value of practices that seek to produce different narratives and other kinds of images in resistance to this logic. 
Artists Mikel Otxoteko and Miranda Pennell, along with architects Ibon Salaberria and Ula Iruretagoiena will present films from Harun Farocki, Hasan Özgür Top, Forensic architecture, and Miranda Pennell herself, expanding the film and reflection offered through a showing that can be visited in the exhibition hall.
