(LONDON 24 May 2017) Hackney Wick-based gallery arebyte and creative think-tank Desearch Repartment will host a themed party on the Thames, on the summer solstice (Wednesday 21 June 2017). Taking place aboard the CensorSHIP, the UK iParty will take participants through a series of playful and satirical activities designed to provoke their re-evaluation of human rights and contemporary global politics.
The fun and enlightening party will travel along the Thames from Westminster Pier to Trinity Buoy Wharf. In leading interactive pedagogical games that test their guests’ mettle – such as ‘Human Rights Against Humanity’, “new ancient spiritual exercise tradition” YAGA, and censoring the Geneva Convention – Desearch Repartment hopes that its guests will be more assertive when engaging with the neoliberal world.
The UK iParty will be carried out in a playful environment, enhanced with themed cocktails (“Don’t Stir the Boat” and “Mixed Metaphor”) photo walls, a melting iceberg sculpture and a singalong to the Guantanamo playlist. The party will also feature a guest lecture by post-media savant Blaise Otium who will be conducting a process of rapid guessing which will offer clues on how to flourish in the ever-changing political and geophysical landscape of our current world
