The One Minutes Series of September is called 'Prism of Freedom' curated by Ghanaian artist Va-Bene E. Fiatsi (crazinisT artisT). Prism of Freedom consists of 16 One Minutes by various international visual artists challenging the socio-political status of freedom. How can we re-interpret the world beyond the intimacy of our eyes?
The series is a mixtape of 16 one-minute films on the future of freedom. The series premieres at Chale Wote Street Art Festival, 20–26 August in James Town, Accra (GH). In September, Prism of Freedom will tour museums and cultural spaces around the world subscribed to The One Minutes Series.
“Prism of Freedom serves as a platform to explore film and videos as language, dialect and gesture in articulating the importance of art as significant medium for socio-political dialogue and activating cultural change. The thematic concept of the series plays on the notion of postcolonial and post-religious perception of independence, and paradox of
liberation with experimental spirit exploring human sense of liberation, freedom, limitations, spirituality, identity and intimacy. However, the series presents also videos which equally explore the politics of time and imagery as sensuous character of questioning our realities.
How can we re-interpret the world beyond the intimacy of our eyes, body or
other senses or how could we ride through the narrow technical vision of perceiving a new world? Could the moving image complement our non-stoppable hallucination of the future of freedom or could it substitute rituals for our sense of realities?”
