Through themes of desire, disruption and subversion, GSPF 2019 explored and negotiated the notion of resistance within our changing social, environmental, political and urban landscapes. Including a series of participatory projections, video games, and virtual reality works, artists pushed the artform of projection into new realms, while questioning constricting structures, pushing back against the status quo, and giving strength to fluid identities.
