Oliver Ressler: Bedtime for Democracy

28 February – 29 April 2017 | theAgency.

Preview: Tuesday 28 February 2017, 6 – 9pm

theAgency. Gallery presents the first solo exhibition of works by the Austrian artist Oliver Ressler in London. The exhibition title Bedtime for Democracy is inspired by a Dead Kennedys album title from 1986. Thirty years on it rings true in our context of a shift to a post-democratic era and a serious crisis of neoliberal capitalism. Ressler’s exhibition brings together photographic works, films and site-specific pieces addressing migration, citizenship, democracy, and capital. The gallery will host a number of public discussions during the exhibition. Under the heading Who we are? the audience will be invited to communally reflect on how we experience and influence society. 

Oliver's films will be screened on 26 February at Close-Up Cinema.
