WEEK 53: Michael Barnes-Wynters – TAKE BACK CONTROL

This event has passed

IMPA TV and K3 Media


Commissioned by The Lowry for WEEK 53

Control is Power…

Take Back Control is a seventy-two hour ‘cult transmission’ unleashing future grassroot gems as it wrestles deep into the realms of sublime mind food, nourishing provocations and era defining soundtrack, courtesy of its stream of radical whispers, soiled pictures, fuzzed-out airwaves, sparky conversations and public interventions.

Inspired by the Public Access Television networks of the 1970s and 1980s (the precursor to the user-generated digital video channels of today), Take Back Control offers a subversive vision of a digital takeover.
