Described by Justin Edgar as ‘a Dadaist film for the digital age, which will eviscerate the interventions and reassemble them in random order’.
This new film, screened in Gallery 9, showcases footage from the 31 artist interventions which took place simultaneously on 2 July 2022 as part of WAIWAV: We Are Invisible We Are Visible which marked the 102nd anniversary of the 1st International Dada Exhibition. Thirty-one d/Deaf, Disabled and Neurodivergent artists staged interventions at thirty museums and galleries across the UK. Dada was an art movement formed in response to the horror and recklessness of the First World War. WAIWAV, the Ampersand Award winning project by DASH, channels the defiant and absurdist spirit of the Dada movement, purposefully provoking visitors to reflect on the societal barriers that continue to restrict and exclude disabled people today.
Edgar is a film maker, visual artist and co-founder of 104, a production company who specialise in disability, film and visual art.
