Artists Tour, Enemy/Friend Talk and Screening of Dr. Strangelove.

The Fallout Pattern Series commenced with a tour of the exhibition with the artist, curators and a/political. The tour was followed by ‘Enemy /Friend’ a talk by a/political Director Becky Haghpanah-Shirwan and Andrei Molodkin on the ethos and vision of The Foundry and the work that has been recently produced there.

The Foundry is an experimental space located in the industrial town of Maubourguet, in the south west of France where artists are invited to use the local factories to produce new work. Founded in 1870 by Jules Fabre, the iron foundry mobilised during the First World War to produce armaments and military equipment for the National Defence. After the war, the secluded area became a centre for Communists. Emigrating from the Fascist regimes of Franco and Mussolini, an international immigrant community developed who worked together under a shared identity and ideology.

The exhibition tour was followed with a screening of Dr. Stranglove.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, is a 1964 black comedy that satirises the Cold War fears of a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States. The film was directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick, stars Peter Sellers and George C. Scott.
