INTERRUPTIONS: John Powell-Jones at The Holden Gallery, Manchester 21 January 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

TechnoTrash at The Holden Gallery is a performance by John Powell-Jones exploring the idea of personal realities in an era of fake news and “alternative truths”. Specifically the idea that due to the Neo-Liberal urgency in the West to improve our own individual existence paired with our fetishisation of progress, instilled by governing patriarchal hierarchies, we often ignore the impact and ramifications our actions have on our co-inhabitants and the environment we share with them.
