CIRCUIT is proud to present Otherwise Worlding, a new reader on artists’ animation featuring essays, conversations, and a playthrough of an interactive game. Otherwise Worlding launches in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington and Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland at the end of July, with a free screening of five artists' works and a special one-off launch price for the reader of $10.

6pm Friday 28 July, play_station, Wellington

6pm Saturday 29 July, Lopdell Theatre, in association with Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, Auckland

Otherwise Worlding was developed from the 2022 exhibition Otherwise-image-worlds which featured installations by four Aotearoa artists Juliet Carpenter, Tanu Gago, Ary Jansen, and Sorawit Songsataya, alongside UK artist Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley.

Edited by Mark Williams and designed by Eva Charlton, the new 66-page full colour reader expands from the original project to discuss broader issues in contemporary animation practice with guest interlocutors and essayists.

The launch events will feature a 40-minute screening of work by all five artists, introduced by CIRCUIT Director Mark Williams.

Places are limited for the screening at Te Uru. To book your seat please RSVP to
