About the Exhibition
Our Demands Most Moderate Are is multimedia reflection on Fiadh’s four years of squatting in Dublin. The installation focuses on the contrast between the utopian prefigurative sentiment which underpins much squatting and the actually existing need and deprivation which she both experienced and witnessed under such living conditions. The work explores the “really existing demands” which are lived on a day-to-day basis in our city through the lenses of housing, healthcare, heavy handed policing and poverty, the work is an attempt to outline a personal and specific phenomenology of housing precarity in Dublin as a way of highlighting more general trends in the neo-liberal approach to housing currently being implemented at various levels of society.
