Dissent is an evening of screenings and dialogue investigating the relationship between dissent as a process and as the intersection between user-generated content, branded space and behavioral psychology.

A collaboration between SPACE and Arebyte, responding to ‘Dissent as an iPhone App’ curated by Angels Miralda, who will be joined by Saemundur Thor Helgason and SPACE This Time With FEELing artist in residence Debora Delmar Corp to discuss the model of the exhibition and methods behind their work.

The app in question is imagined as a multi-layered solution to the online exhibition format. It attempts to provide a participatory critical platform where audience members can engage with the exhibition. It exists online but via a physical space and series of events, overlapping the virtual platform with a physical space.

An initial screening organised by Angels Miralda will inform the discussion on how artists use virtual space to interact with real space bringing about the connection between the two rather than their isolation.  After the screening we will go deeper into the motivations behind the app and serve as a discussion platform post-exhibition when concrete evidence and data will become available.

OpenPROCESS is a platform that responds to process-led practice. The series explores artistic production as a framework for discussion, investigating what it means to foreground process as the subject of display and exploration.


Dissent as an iPhone App is commissioned by arebyte Gallery and part of its 2016 programme ‘Legal Aesthetics’. The show is also supported by O2ThinkBig
