The ECONOMY Film Lounge includes moving-image works that demonstrate the diversity of creative responses to capitalism’s global dominance since the 1990s. Addressing four of the ECONOMY keywords (work, spectres, crisis, exodus), the selected works have been produced by artists, documentarists, activists and curators. They tackle subjects as varied as obsolescence, alternative economies, social processes of radicalisation, the contribution of intellectuals to anti-capitalist struggle and much more.
Film Lounge is a purpose-built screening room which provides a comfortable environment for the viewing of moving-image works. Visitors are invited to select from a menu of films which can then be seen from start to finish. As part of the ECONOMY project two Film Lounge screening evenings will also be presented in CCA’s cinema. Please see the events pages and website for further details.
Film Lounge will be open seven days a week, 11am - 6pm*.
*Please note that on few occasions the Film Lounge will be closed due to courses. Please phone ahead to check 0131 622 6200
