Phillip Birch’s presentation of The Oubliette, on view in In Practice: Fantasy Can Invent Nothing New, examines the rising rates of schizophrenia and psychosis in a not-so-distant future where Vivisystems have eroded the last distinctions between the biological and the technological. A series of on-site performances by Birch will outline the history of this technological epoch and examine the etiology and pathophysiology of schizophrenia and its corollary to a position that has been described as After the Flesh. Birch will perform at the following times: Saturday, May 28 at 5pm; Sunday, June 12 at 3pm; Saturday, July 16 at 5pm; and Sunday, July 31 at 2pm.
