Moving Image, 2012



Brad Butler and collaborator Karen Mirza have worked together since 1998, and in 2004 formed no.w.here, an artist-run space for the production, discussion and dissemination of practices engaged with moving image, politics, technology and aesthetics. no.w.here’s role as a cooperative environment is directly related to the centering of Mirza and Butler’s own practice upon collaboration, dialogue and the social. Since 2007 they have pursued a strain of practice entitled The Museum of Non Participation. This ongoing body of work confronts (non) participation and the socio-political in art works. This Museum consistently evolves through the geo-political ground upon which its works are produced and presented, in keeping with its initial formation. Thus far, this work has been presented in Egypt, Pakistan, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. to question how withdrawal can be made visible and how “non participation” can be active and critical.
