“The future belongs to the big black-out and radio silence.” (Paul Virilio)
Both film shooting and intervention in the city space at the same time, irreality.tv’s big series finale will hopefully involve a complete black-out in Sandleiten. Are we going to succeed in dimming out the city and turning off all TV sets, neon signs and street lamps? And then, what are we going to do under the screen of night darkness? No registration required.
Meeting point: Altes Kino Sandleiten, Liebknechtgasse 32, 1160 Wien.
The Big Black-Out takes place in the context of NIGHTWATCH by irreality.tv. In May and June, the performance TV collective irreality.tv will shoot a participatory science-fiction series for TV. NIGHTWATCH is set in a world that could be hours: a 24/7 rhythm rules everyday life. Nights are bereft of darkness and sleep is first optimised, then banned altogether. Hardly anyone dares to dream. And yet, there is some resistance against this regime of sleeplessness. A sleepeasy opens in Ottakring, a secret place where people meet for collective sleeping. Hope for a blackout is alive.
