Films by New Red Order and Other Collaborative Constellations
A public secret society consisting of Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil, and Jackson Polys, as well as a changing group of collaborators, New Red Order creates videos, performances, and exhibitions related to indigeneity. Using humor, reappropriation, and an array of forms of address and artistic strategies, New Red Order variously undermines traditional ethnography and creates alternative forms of documentary. Culture Capture: Crimes Against Reality uses varied technologies to transform historical monuments. The evolving Never Settle: The Program, seen in a sneak preview, takes the form of an initiation video into New Red Order. In A I O U, made in connection with Hito Steyerl’s exhibition Drill, victims of military violence from different time periods are brought back to life.
Adam and Zack Khalil of New Red Order will give an artist talk via Zoom with the Berkeley Center for New Media on Wednesday, April 13, 5–6:30 PM PDT, presented as part of the ATC | Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium and the Indigenous Technologies Initiative.
