The joint film program by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, the global online shopping platform FARFETCH, and the independent online publication about fashion, beauty, and contemporary culture The Blueprint, will embrace the history of various communities and subcultures as well as their impact on contemporary life. Subcultures and Communities screenings will be organized throughout the entire season of Garage Screen summer cinema.
Community building is a topic that has become extremely relevant lately. In large companies, entire community management departments are created specially in order to form communities of consumers, while brands and institutions are looking for collaborations with the leaders of such communities. Communities sometimes rebel, strike, and aid their own members. Formed around professions, hobbies, places of residence, or simply urban attractions, they may lead their own life and simultaneously influence the political situation, social hierarchies and the system. Films featured in the program will demonstrate how various communities are represented in cinema in order for us to better understand how and why we unite in collectives and why is it so important to meet like-minded others.
The screenings will be held at Garage Screen summer cinema once a fortnight, on Tuesdays.
