Participants of the 2013/14 LUX Critical Forum present a selection of new works. LUX13 consists of 15 artists who came together in May 2013 as part of Critical Forum London 2013-14: a discussion group initiated by LUX offering a monthly meeting space for one year to artists working with the moving-image, who are no longer in education. Each meeting consisted of two members presenting an aspect of their practice. This has included discussing work-in-progress, sharing texts, considering broader theoretical ideas, and viewing works from the LUX archive. Continuing the group’s process of discursive exchange, each artist has made a work that is no longer than three minutes in response to a word or phrase provided by another member of the group.
