This year the Bartlett Summer Studio opens to the public with a special screening of two films which explore how creative practice can extend into spaces which are both politically contested and environmentally challenging.

Both films explore the ingenuity of human physical endeavour and, in the process, reveal insights into how space can be reclaimed for public good in the harshest of environments. 

Join us for a screening followed by a discussion and Q&A with the Directors: 

Epicly Palestine'd: The Birth Of Skateboarding In The West Bank

(Dir. Theo Krish & Phillip Joa SkatePal)

The story of how a small group of teenagers created a skate scene from scratch in a place where you can't even buy a skateboard, whilst facing the challenges of living under military occupation. 

No Half Measures  

(Dir. Ross McClure)

Seven miles off the east coast of England, on an old military fortress, lies The Principality of Sealand - a self declared independent state. In its 49-year history Sealand has survived hostile takeovers, raging storms and fireballs. But it had never, until recently, staged its own running race.

This screening is organised by BREAK//LINE in collaboration with the Summer Studio ‘Acts of Institutional Disobedience’ led by Bartlett students Laurence Flint, Thandi Loewenson and Timmy Whitehouse.
