Noor Afshan Mirza and Brad Butler: The Scar

  • through December 1, 2018
  • Delfina Foundation, London
The Scar is a film in three chapters ("The State of the State," "The Mouth of the Shark" and "The Gossip), inspired by a true event with names, scenes and locations fictionalized through magical realism. Istanbul-based Mirza and Butler's practice takes on and deconstructs urgent and complex narratives around our relationship to state power and, in particular, issues of inequality and corruption, to propose ultimately a post-patriarchal near future. The film is shown as an immersive, five-screen installation accompanied by a workshops, talks and performances co-curated with Mirza and Butler, which all imagine future feminism and its relation to the past and to the present.

Film still from The Scar, by Noor Arshan Mirza and Brad Butler, 2017.
