Unmasking || Remapping x Flatpack: ‘Derby Day’ – Babeworld Screening and Q&A with Anne Duffau

15 May 20246–7.30pm

Mockingbird Cinema
Plus late night gallery opening until 9pm.

Please join us on Wednesday 15 May from 6–7.30pm at Mockingbird Cinema for a screening of ‘Derby Day’. Babeworld present their 2023 film work alongside a compilation of YouTube videos, anime clips and gaming references that have inspired them over the years. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the collective, hosted by cultural producer and founder of independent nomadic platform A—Z, Anne Duffau.

‘Derby Day’ is an investigation into the art world with a critical eye on intersectionality; defying and reclaiming this space whilst also conjuring a threshold into new potentials. Leaning into the theme of violence as both a tool of the oppressor and of meaningful liberation, Derby Day takes inspiration from 90s horror, anime and the clarity of Super 8mm home movie formats.

There will be a late night opening of Babeworld x utopian_realism; ‘Love is Real, and it’s Inside of My Computer’ at the gallery until 9pm to coincide with this screening. Feel free to visit the exhibition before or after the event!

This event is presented in partnership with Flatpack Festival.

This screening is the second event in the Unmasking || Remapping programme, a series designed and planned by students from MA Art History and Curating at University of Birmingham. The programme is curated in response to themes of neurodiversity and inclusivity, drawn from Babeworld’s exhibition ‘Love is Real and its Inside of my Computer’.
