Thanatopolis II: An Evening with AutopsiA

South London's Iklectik art space will host the evening curated by Alexei Monroe, author of AutopsiA Thanatopolis

Following on from the first UK exhibition of the Eastern European industrial art collective at London's Horse Hospital, Iklectik in Waterloo will host a night of films and music by the group. Curated by Alexei Monroe, author of the Autopsia monograph AutopsiA Thanatopolis (Divus 2016), many of the films have never before been screened in the UK. They're described by the venue as working with “ghostly ‘electronic frescoes’ [to] reveal a further, fascinating layer of their work”. On top of this, Monroe will give a lecture.

The event also marks the release of Damnatio Memoriae, which features recordings based on a 2016 sound installation Autopsia mounted at The Museum of Fine Arts in Split, Croatia.

The event will start at 7pm on 12 April.
