We’re pleased to invite you to the opening of the project developed by San Francisco-based Artist [Ian Alan Paul|http://www.ianalanpaul.com|en|Ian Alan Paul] during his residency. The artist has produced a fictional EU Agency entitled “The EU Bird Migration Authority”, a fake EU border-security agency specifically tasked with monitoring, controlling and apprehending migrant bird populations. Please join us on Monday, August 26th to see documents, videos, and texts from the agency at the Homesession studio.
More about the EU Bird Migration Authority: “The Bird Migration Authority is a project of the European Union that aims to monitor and mitigate the ongoing migration of non-native bird populations between EU member states and neighboring countries. Using state of the art surveillance and tracking technologies, the EU-BMA not only monitors migrating bird flocks across North Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, but also uses predictive algorithms to assist in the apprehension and reduction of foreign species. Tracking and managing the bird populations across the E.U. member states will serve to better protect the European Economy, Ecology, and Society from the threats posed by unregulated migrating bird flocks.”
A website accompanying the exhibition ([www.birdmigrationauthority.net|www.birdmigrationauthority.net|en|EU Bird Migration Authority]) will be launched on August 26th, the day of the opening.
Opening: Monday, August 26th, 19:30
Exhibition: 26/08 -> 31/08, 17:00-19:30 and by appointment
