Paper Visual Art
Talk on the Work of Adam Curtis
The Douglas Hyde are pleased to host a Paper Visual Art talk on the recent work by British filmmaker Adam Curtis, particularly his 2016 essay-film Hypernormalisation.
Alice Butler of the Irish Film Institute, Francis Halsall of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and independent filmmaker Tadhg O’Sullivan (The Great Wall) have been invited to contribute to this discussion. The major focus of the talk will be the content and form of Curtis’s argumentation in this film and how this form of argumentation has evolved from earlier works.
