Polina Medvedeva and Andreas Kühne

The Informals II

Co-commissioned by Brighton Festival

Artists Polina Medvedeva and Andreas Kühne present an interactive exhibition exploring music subcultures of Brighton, zeroing in on non-conformity and defiance of standard lifestyles in our digital age. Projections of video, text, music and dialogue tell stories of Brighton’s digital-savvy emerging talent who use musical culture to challenge stigmas and stereotypes at a time when politics is against them.

The Informals II is a new commission by Lighthouse and Brighton Festival, with support from Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, and Mondriaan Fund. The Informals was originally commissioned by Sonic Acts and Inversia Festival, Murmansk.
