Hyphen is an exhibition of research-in-practice by PhD candidates and alumni at the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) and the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI) at University of Westminster.
What possible worlds can be discovered in the interstices between research and creation? What modes of knowing and un-knowing are activated in an exhibition focused on process rather than form? How do we study, as Moten and Harney say, with other people, and what do the works that we create do when they socialise with each other?
The hyphen is a mark that both separates and connects, and opens into multiplicities of origins, interests, cultures, media, practices, fields of research, modes of creation. The hyphen is non-binary, multidimensional; a link, a gap, a joint, a hinge, a line, a break, an opening, a void. Hyphen assembles practices that incorporate video, photography, sound, installation, ceramics, digital media, performance, dance, music, workshops, talks. http://www.hy-phen.space/exposition/
In conjunction with the exhibition, the online journal Hyphen was launched. (http://hy-phen.space)
