Event description

Description

In 2018 we find ourselves deep in the midst of information overload, fake news and orchestrated chaos. Our natural instincts are subverted and used against us, our grip on truth and reality slipping further and further away.

Are we all having our minds fucked? And if so, how the hell are we supposed to respond?

This is new collection of work by a group of artists, writers and actors who have come together over the past two years to form Brighton Arts Lab.

The original Operation Mindfuck was conceived in the late 60s by a bunch of acid-fried hippies. It suggested to artists that truth and meaning were to be played with as much as possible in order to confuse the Forces of Control. It was, predictably, co-opted by the Forces of Control and used to engender confusion, compliance and apathy in the general public.

In Operation Mindfuck 2018, Brighton Arts Lab reclaim these tools of coercive psychological and emotional manipulation.

Join us as we use them to rekindle the natural anarchistic impulses of art.

Attendees will be granted an empowering mixture of respect and information not available at home or online.

Installation, Music, Performance, Video, Ritual.

July 25th - 7.30pm-11pm - £8

In the spirit of the creative happenings of the sixties, Brighton Arts Lab is a new bi-monthly event, serving up performances, spoken word, workshops, film and exhibitions. Each event is themed around different aspects of creativity.

The Lab aims to be inclusive, offering opportunities for local artists and performers to collaborate through our events, and for audiences to be entertained, stimulated and challenged.

Please get in touch via our Facebook Page to suggest future themes and to let us know if you have ideas for how you might like to contribute to one of our events.

Brighton Arts Lab is in partnership with the Phoenix Gallery and is curated by Catalyst Club host, author and podcaster, David Bramwell.
