Near Now Fellow Adham Faramawy presents a screening of David Cronenberg's Videodrome as part of POROUS BODIES, a series of events devised by the artist to complement his Fellowship research.

Videodrome + Introduction

A sleazy cable-TV programmer begins to see his life and the future of media spin out of control in a terrifying new reality.

A techno-surrealist cult classic written and directed by David Cronenberg, Videodrome is a pulsating science fiction nightmare about a world where video can control and alter human life.


This screening will feature a recorded introduction by artist and Near Now Fellow Adham Faramawy.

Porous Bodies

A series of events devised by Adham Faramawy to complement his Near Now Fellowship research.

Adham has devised a selection of films that undermine the idea of the human body as a singular entity, exploding the idea of the body as a discreet biological category. Sometimes literally.

These screenings and accompanying events complement Adham's current research and artistic practice. They present a variety of often problematic approaches to the body, exploring perspectives that reframe the body as a plastic process, porous and adaptable, denaturalised, magic, science-fictive and miraculous.
