Hands Tied

Another Screen together with ICI Berlin presents two rarely exhibited films on hands and their place in relation to fate, work, pleasure, touch, and surveillance: Maria Lassnig’s Palmistry (1974) and Ayesha Hameed’s A Rough History (of the destruction of fingerprints) (2015).

These two short films are accompanied by a transcribed roundtable discussion, which includes a number of voices: Rachel Aumiller, Sam Dolbear, Nadine El-Enany, Amelia Groom, Clio Nicastro, Daniella Shreir, Anja Sunhyun Michaelsen, and M. Ty.

Hands Tied is programmed as part of Sam Dolbear’s ICI project ‘Cosmic Reductions: Palms, Fate, Body, Character’, which has a newsletter available for subscription here.
