A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
Modern Panic explores the work and ideas behind this subversive arts event in London, 2011.
Presented by Guerrilla Zoo curator James Elphick, 'Modern Panic' explores the work of a number of international artists. The list includes legendary prisoner Charles Bronson (central character of Nicholas Winding Refn’s Bronson), the enfant terrible of Bolivia Gaston Ugalde, Berlin based taxidermist Iris Schieferstein and controversial british artist Kira O’Reilly. As well as these big names the film features a host of remarkable upcoming artists and Guerrilla Zoo regulars. All of these artists come together to create an event in the spirit of the original Panic Movement.
The event entitled Modern Panic was inspired by the work of the Panic Movement, formed by legendary art filmmakers Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fernando Arrabal and Roland Topor in Paris 1962. The event acts as a follow up to Guerrilla Zoo’s Season of Jodorowsky from late 2009.
