Description

CiTiZEN KiNO is a live performance and public media navigation system. Together with online and on-site citizens we collect and select archival media files on urgent topics or situations in our societies which require analysis and community strategies. We then screen materials in a live engaged public forum, creating an expanded and recombinant cinema, a newsfeed embedded in an art event and unfolding into a town hall meeting. It's potentially a reclaiming of the old Pathe' newsreels + public service broadcasts intermixed with all those disintegrating Hollwood-screen spectacles and cubicle-izing digital frames and arriving at a re-embodied social media gathering. One that that has real teeth for collective agency and unscripted futures. CiTiZEN KiNO: One small step for occupied humans, one giant leap off the edge of our screens ! An open-source platform to return home and start building community again.
