A fundraising event for Post-Museum Fund
Organised by Carol and Dawn

The Self requires an Other to define itself against. This idea that the foreigner/Other can first be found within us is not new - as Zygmunt Bauman put it, the Other is ‘the vomited enemy’. This week, experience First Contact with the Other, and find a new way to live with yourself, in our city full of strangers.
"The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope." - Barbara Kingsolver

Film Study of The Man Who Fell To Earth. Since the movie's release, The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976, dir: Nicolas Roeg) has grown to a cult status due to its surreal imagery, calm, meditative music and mood. The film profoundly explores human values and desires; the clichés of social and cultural rituals; hoping against the odds. Starring David Bowie. 139min, in English.

The Silence Experiments. Silence is intimate; it opens up our pores and our heart to feel the cores of others. Sit with Mary-Jane Leo for 15 minutes in silence at the alley next to Food #03. She will make something - a word, a poem, a drawing- at the end. This is part of Mary's little personal quest to understand silence, souls, energy, intimacy, eyes, the cosmos.

Entry by purchase of multiple drinks & your strange stories

Silent Film Screening: Strangers on a Train (1951) & Fieldnotes on Strangers: a pilot event of Hello Stranger. Come sit, drink and exchange stories about the strangers you've met in our peculiar world. A lurking scribe will be eavesdropping, furiously taking fieldnotes for the ongoing art project. Write a letter to your stranger. Letters collected throughout the week and on the day itself will be hung on a line for your viewing pleasure.
