Essentials: Protest presents iconic cine-pamphlets, cine-manifestos and film-essays that mobilised the social energies of discontent, crisis and struggle that convulsed the 20th century. Drawing upon aesthetic traditions of negation, critique and provocation, these artists use the political forms of montage, collage and appropriation to produce radical interventions. Including: Jean Vigo, Harun Farocki, Jean-Marie Straub and Dani?®le Huillet, Santiago Alvarez and Jorge Furtado. more
