Mountaintop Administration Screening
Sunday 30th March at 7:00pm
Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3JD
F and E screen a collaboratively made home movie as part of their ongoing Mountaintop Administration project.
Trying to speak to the space of psychic foreclosure within and around us. Reading letters; throwing bureaucratic papers in the canal; finding moments of resistance within the newspaper; talking in the kitchen; dream interrogations; flying f16 drones; the city at work; buying a stamp; selling our gold; self portraits made by fighter jet pilots…the urge to escape to the mountain from the office is not a clichéd emotion. We have to perform these situations as WORK to continue living (sometimes). The carpet on the floor and the tiled ceiling should be enough of a symbol.

plus bonus screening of trailer for O.K. RICK – Florrie’s upcoming feature film Mountaintop Administartion screening is the third part of Attention Deficit-Reductionalism, a project at Intermedia, January 2014

12:00pm until 2:00pm
National Day of Action Against ATOS (and the whole system of Work Capability Assessments) and National Protest Against Workfare This is the day that the new Community Work Placements are being launched.
These will force JSA claimants to work for six months without pay. Six months – 780 hours – is more than twice the maximum community service sentence. Workfare does not help people find jobs and being unemployed is not a crime.
The protest against ATOS is a follow-up to the widely supported day of protest at the end of February.
