East London Cable

Reality Forum

  • Reality Forum is where reality TV meets its distant cousinperformance. Organized by East London Cable, it is an irregular and informal screening and discussion group whose aim is to consider the genre that has come to be known as ‘unscripted television through an artistic and critical lens. Beginning in September, throughout the 3 sessions we will move from the classics like This American Life, The Real World, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, through niche series like Connected, The Prancing Elites Project or Terrace House to the Polish original and franchise gems like Ballada o lekkim zabarwieniu erotycznym, Amazonki or Ex na plaży. Completing the selection with the artist works that use reality TV tactics and with anecdotes, spin-offs and behind-the-scenes picks we will try to both contextualise reality TV as a form of modern performance art and problematise it as a mode of labour and representation. We invite anyone with an interest in reality TVfans, actors, artists or criticsto join. Reality Forum is accompanied by special Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2089036244441437/
