Delivery for Mr. Assange


40min.

    By FACT Liverpool

    Published on 28 Mar 2017

    Julian Assange has been living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London since June 2012. In early 2013, !Mediengruppe Bitnik sent a parcel to the WikiLeaks founder, in a work entitled Delivery for Mr. Assange. The parcel contained a camera which broadcast its entire journey through the postal system live on the internet.

    FACT presents documentation of this performance, but also (in its first UK presentation) Assange’s Room, a striking, sculptural 1:1 reproduction of Assange’s office at the embassy. The room is meticulously constructed entirely from memory, (photography is not allowed in embassy rooms) after several visits made by the artists to the office. A disparity to Assange’s freedom, visitors to the room can freely walk in and out of the uncannily normal space. The physical restrictions placed on a seeker of political asylum stand in stark contrast to the reach offered by Wikileaks, and the Internet, as a platform for free speech.

    !Mediengruppe Bitnik is participating in How much of this is fiction. with the support of the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
