7a*md8 – On Screen is a collection of performances designed specifically for the camera by local, national and international artists. In the past few years we have seen how the camera has played a major role in bringing attention to narratives, events and bodies marginalized from the general public. Lens-based media and online platforms have created new possibilities for self representation. The artists selected for this series will speak to our relationship to media as a form of accessible communication in the face of unevenly permeable borders.
