Tobias Revell The Monopoly of Legitimate Use

Co-commissioned by HOUSE 2014 and Lighthouse

28 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ

Sat 3- Sun 25 May
Opening Times: 11am – 6pm daily
Entry: Free

Critical designer and futurist, Tobias Revell’s interests include theoretical physics and failed architecture. The Monopoly of Legitimate Use is a three-part film with individual vignettes named Blackspot, Bumper and Stateless in which Revell looks at near-future techno-political landscape.

Each short film deals in turn with the control of citizenship political identity and border definition, within a complex, networked topology.

The work also poses questions around alternative models of power and technology that in turn may alter perceptions and understandings of migration in today’s society.
