FORMAT 21: Control
Opening Weekend

11- 14 March 2021


We can be in control, out of control, beyond control. Control can be passive as with a remote control or progressive as in birth control. It can offer science a control group and be an expression of power as in command and control.

“If you don’t control your mind, someone else will” – Barbara Kruger

We all seek to control our own lives while resisting control by others.  Control has come to denote power and oppression yet we want to “take back control”.

The FORMAT21 Open Call is now closed and a massive thank you to everyone who has sent in their projects. We have been overwhelmed by the number of entries and the quality of them.
