NUART LOCKDOWN EDITION
We’ve been mulling over how to release the content we’ve been working on for the launch of our 20th Anniversary. It’s oddly the same sort of challenge as listening to the news and trying to keep some semblance of normality in our day-to-day. Each ‘strategy’ we attempt to come up with to keep our community connected, feels wrong somehow. So we are going oganic and off the script. Take a minute to read the below from Nuart Director Martyn Reed. Stay connected, and be gentle to yourselves.
"We have some really strong, interesting and deep content set to drop over the coming days and weeks under the #nuartlockdown name. We’ve been reflecting a lot on how best to deliver this under current conditions -we’ve really no desire to add to the tsunami of “creative content” of late. Much of it acting as nothing more than an ad break during a disaster movie. We’re conscious that the current rush to turn the “private” into the “public” is a tech bro venture capitalists wet dream, so we’ll go easy on the streaming until we’ve unpacked how it may impact those less privileged than us. Our culture and its place in the attention economy, how surveillance capitalism and its attendants may leverage it has been on our minds of late, many have been quick to embrace the shift from street to studio to the digital realm, but are the viewers for sale ? a topic, amongst many others we’ll be asking ourselves and others over the coming days.”
