Brutal Silences: A Live Art Development Agency Study Room Guide on Live Art in Ireland

Notes

A Study Room Guide featuring selected performances from eleven artists who interrogate and interrupt the silences that exist in Ireland. It explores the use of repetition, cycles and duration to explore the legacies of secrecy and purity entrenched in Irish culture. To coincide with recent developments in Ireland about the Magdalene Laundries, the following links also provide further context to the Study Guide and up-to-date information about the current politics around the Laundries: -Justice For Magdalenes (JFM) contains all the latest information and news articles as well as resources on the Magdalene Laundries and the campaign to gain the women justice: http://www.magdalenelaundries.com/news.htm -Paddy Doyle’s ‘A history of Neglect’ outlines the history of the Industrial and Reformatory schools but also shows recent press releases, articles and information on the issues with the Redress Board: http://www.paddydoyle.com/a-history-of-neglect/ -Following recommendations from the UN Committee Against Torture (UNCAT) the Irish government announced on 14th of June 2011 that it will undertake an independently chaired inquiry into Ireland’s Magdalene Laundries.
