'Miraculous' Time Out
'Impeccable ... heart-stopping ... fearless' Times
'Enchanting, sometimes terrifying ... a Taliban thriller' Dazed & Confused The first film from Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban, Siddiq Barmak's stunning, Sutherland Award-winning and Golden Globe nominated Osama received a standing ovation at its Cannes Festival premiere last year. Through the lens of a Western news cameraman, street urchin Espandi leads the way to a remarkable protest by blue-veiled women whose demonstrations are swiftly swept from the streets of Kabul. Among the crowds is a young, nameless girl (Marina Golbahari) who finds herself shorn and disguised as a boy in order to work. But when she is rounded up and sent to a religious school where she is named Osama, her disguise dramatically falters and she embarks on a further odyssey through the judicial system of the Taliban. From a country that has produced less than 40 films in the past century, Afghanistan's first Academy nomination is a passionate and lyrical film full of exquisitely surreal imagery and evocative of its spiritual godfather (and uncredited producer) Mohsen Makhmalbaf's now-legendary Kandahar. Dir Siddiq Barmak, Afghanistan 2003, 82 mins, subs, 12A

Cinema 2: 22-29 Feb
Epic Cinema
Three epic films, to confound the culture of short attention spans.

26-28 Feb, 7pm, 29 Feb 4.30pm
Fanny & Alexander
'Magisterial' Time Out
Seen through the eyes of a small boy, Bergman's brilliant turn of the century family saga is also an anthology of personal references, from its dazzling evocation of a traditional Christmas, through the terrors of a puritanical father to the crisis of religious doubt. The marvellous cinematography is by Sven Nykvist. Dir Ingmar Bergman, Sweden 1982, 189 mins, subs

28 Feb 4pm, 29 Feb 8pm
'Elegant ... Intellectually chic' Time Out
A film of ineffable mystery in which the unresolved disappearance of a tourist on an isolated Sicilian volcanic island affects her companions in disparate ways. Starring Monica Vitti. Dir Michelangelo Antonioni, Italy/France 1960, 145 mins, subs

Cinema 2: 1-31 March
Thinking Aloud
Noam Chomsky, Jacques Lacan, Slavoj Zizek and Jacques Derrida - an unrivalled opportunity to watch and listen to thinkers as they try to make sense of the world.

1, 2, 4, 6 Mar
'Inspirational and unexpectedly moving' Film Comment
'A potent and profound investigation' Rolling Stone
This award-winning film is an intimate portrait of the brilliant, controversial philosopher and intellectual icon Jacques Derrida, whose theory of 'deconstruction' has deeply influenced the studies of literature, philosophy, ethics, architecture and law, indelibly marking the intellectual landscape of the 20th and 21st centuries. Provocative and entertaining. Dir Kirby Dick/Amy Ziering Kofman, US 2002, 85 mins

Cinema 2: 1-26 March
The Rare Films of Yoko Ono
'To look at Yoko Ono's work is to look at an artist who isn't afraid' Sam Taylor-Wood Guardian Complementing the "Odyssey Of A Cockroach" exhibition, this season of films is a rare opportunity to see a selection of the important and compelling films of Yoko Ono, and those made with John Lennon and herself. Shown in historical sequence, they have been selected by Yoko Ono herself and range from a film such as Film No 4 (Bottom) through Rape which one critic said did "for the age of television what Franz Kafka's The Trial did for the age of totalitarianism", to Erection, a film about the construction of a hotel to Fly, showing a fly explore a woman's body. These are works that helped to reshape the grammar of film.

'Gracious, thoughtful, sensitive... original and strong-willed' Guardian 'coolest architects in the world' The Times This is the first UK exhibition of the acclaimed architects, Foreign Office Architects (FOA), founded by Farshid Moussavi and Alejandro Zaera Polo. Based in London, they have a global reputation with projects commissioned or realised in cities as varied as London, New York, Tehran, Seoul and Yokohama. FOA's diverse projects include, among others, an international port terminal, an urban and coastal park, a theatre, a police headquarters and a proposed replacement for the World Trade Centre. Designed as a series of immersive installations, this visually stunning exhibition explores FOA's projects, the particularities of each city in which they've built, and the influences on their work. The exhibition also provides, uniquely, a critical insight into the office's internal 'operating system'.
Amidst projections of built projects and related UV illuminated drawings, the lower galleries contain architectural models placed on a vivid diagram linking each project. Video interviews are featured with an international selection of FOA's clients, allowing a rare insight into the commissioning and developing of projects. The concourse gallery features an installation comprising illustrated samples of the surface textures of their projects. Mon - Fri: £1.50, £1.00 Concs, FREE to ICA Members; Sat & Sun: £2.50, £1.50 Concs, FREE to ICA members

Until 7 Mar, 12.30 - 7.30pm
'Ono has pulled off a difficult and delicate task, creating a highly theatrical mise en scene that makes the viewer feel personally involved rather than overwhelmed' Time Out, NY Odyssey of a Cockroach is an installation that takes the form of a theatrical mise-en-scene , the experience of a cockroach as it makes its way through the city of New York. But more than that, 'it's a phantasmagorical passage through time - specifically the last century' NY Time Out. In Odyssey of a Cockroach, walls are covered with billboard-size colour photographs of gritty urban scenes - a bloody crime scene, a bombed-out building, a starving child. Towering sculptures depict similarly unsettling subjects - a six foot rubbish bin overflowing with plaster body casts, an enormous replica of a human rat trap, and hundreds and hundreds of old discarded shoes, the owners long forgotten.
Describing the genesis of this project, Yoko Ono says: 'I have taken various pictures of the city's corners and presented them from a cockroach's point of view. Through the eyes of this other strong race, we may learn the true reality of what our dreams and nightmares have created. I invite you to join me on this odyssey.' The exhibition is an offsite project, which will be held in a 3 storey gallery space at: 14 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW. (Nearest Tubes: Angel/Old Street) Odyssey of a Cockroach was first seen at Deitchs Projects, New York, 2003.

1 - 21 Mar, daily 12 - 7.30pm
Expat-Art Centre
'An exhibition that is when the art centre is not'
The ICA presents Expat-Art Centre (EA C): a nomadic exhibition specifically conceived to occupy the typically transitory time and space between two exhibitions, when a gallery or an art centre is normally closed. EA C features a series of context-specific artworks by Brian Eno; Pierre Huyghe (represented France at the 2001 Venice Biennalle); Ben Kinmont (exhibited in Documenta XI, Kassel); Claude Lévêque (permanent installation at PS1, New York); Didier Marcel; Olivier Mosset; Shimabuku (Utopia Station, 2003 Venice Biennale); Dan Walsh and Ian Wilson.
Curated by Mathieu Copeland, EA C operates as an exponential curatorial model that is both self-contained and self-generative, adapting from one venue to the next: it is an exhibition that simultaneously exists in all places, at all times, with all people and yet without specific dates, spaces or locations.
Encompassing elements of painting, sculpture, installation and human intervention, EA C will be integrated throughout various locations within the ICA. Amongst others, new works will include a continuous sound work by Brian Eno, Elise Van Elise, an installation incorporating sound and light by Claude Lévêque, This isn't it an intervention by Ben Kinmont, and a work by Shimabuku which echoes the trajectory of the moon in relation to that of the exhibition.
Beginning at the ICA, EA C will subsequently travel to Museum of Contemporary Art, Lyon, France; Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnuis, Lithuania; Krakow and Lodz, Poland; and beyond. Mon - Fri: £1.50, £1.00 Concs, FREE to ICA Members; Sat & Sun: £2.50, £1.50 Concs, FREE to ICA members Various locations around the ICA

Sat 28 Feb, 8pm
Plug Research Records Night:
Daedelus + Ammon Contact
The ICA is proud to present LA's most prestigious and profound electronic imprint Plug Research with two of their highly innovative acts. Daedelus is one of LA's new electronic based artists weaving together a patented true love-sound that falls between honeyed melody and avant-electronics. He incorporates acoustic guitar, chopping and splicing disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of staggering resonance. His latest output on Plug Research is the classic underground album Invention. DJs will be representing the full spectrum of the label's output on the night. £7, £6 Concs. £5 ICA Members Theatre

Wed 3rd March, 8pm
SH: 'If you liked the Autechre remix of East Flatbush Project or the Funkstroung remix of the Wu-Tang Clan then you'll definitely want this genre-buster' Dedbeat, organisers of internationally renowned Dedbeat festivals, and Skam, the finest exponent of skewed, beat-hard electronic output this side of the planet, provide a night to remember for those in the know. Creeping up on the left centre of hip hop and bustedt headz, Shadow Huntaz are a 3 person multi-regional assembly of MCs (Chicago, Atlanta and L.A.), with one duty: to preserve the state of hip hop by any means necessary. Following some single introductions on Skam, it's their debut album, Corrupt Data - the result of using the internet artistically - which has the musical community contemplating their futures. Corrupt Data sees The Funckarma Brothers (Plug Research) brew the beats and Huntaz MCs Breaff, Dream and Non spit the rhymes; all made possible by the advent of Data file transferring. In 15 months the Dutch brothers made 35 tracks with the American MCs, without seeing or speaking to each other - a perfect mix of electronic music, hip hop vocals and modern technology. Be here to witness the parties as they meet live for the first time and tour this highly original material.
Supported by Infinite Livez, a one man army whose reputation grows with every release and live performance. Currently trying to corner the market in one-eyed glove puppets called Barry with EP Sumfink 4 Nafink, Livez' own record label Big Dada happily describe the future legend as Smiley Culture crossed with David Cronenberg.

Tears of a Clone
Since Dolly the sheep, scientists have cloned cows, goats, and a cat. Using the same techniques, researchers are now trying to grow embryos cloned from a single human cell. But can a human be cloned safely? Cloned humans could theoretically provide a supply of donor organs, help eradicate some diseases and allow infertile couples to reproduce. But what are the ethical and legal consequences of human cloning, and how does it affect our sense of what it means to be human? Arlene Judith Klotzko discusses the science of cloning, and the ethical, political, and legal issues. Klotzko, a bioethicist and lawyer, is Writer in Residence at the Science Museum and Visiting Scholar in Bioethics at UCL. She writes regularly on science and ethics in the mainstream and science press, and is the author of A Clone of Your Own? The Science and Ethics of Cloning. £5, £4 Concs. £3 ICA members

Aristarkh Chernyshev & Vladislav Efimov
Moscow artists Aristarkh Chernyshev and Vladislav Efimov have been working together since 1996. During this time they have made a number of video and interactive installations devoted to various scientific problems: they studied the phenomenon of beauty in industrial society (Opus Magnum, 1998), and tried to comprehend how the brain functions (Mystery of Brain, 1999) and changed themselves using the latest scientific achievement - the decoding of the human genome (Genetic Gymnastics, 2000-2001). In one of their latest work - The Project of the Monument to A.Schwarzenegger as Terminator T-800 - they studied the mechanism of the pop-culture.
