VIDEOTHEQUE : RIGHTS WOT WRONGS?
23 NOVEMBER – 25 NOVEMBER 2017, 12:00-17:00
An installation I developed responding to newly digitised 80′s archive, beginning with workers campaigns against discrimination, original campaign print materials and audio from TURC Video and the Birmingham Trade Union Resource Centre. This rich archive of community media and early media arts production was inherited by Vivid Projects in 2013. In 1991, with the support of the Economic Development Unit of Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Arts, TURC Video joined with the community arts organisation Wide Angle and in 1992 was established as Birmingham Centre For Media Arts – which t/a ‘VIVID’ until closure in 2012. The archive is now under the stewardship of Vivid Projects and former VIVID staff Yasmeen Baig-Clifford and Marian Hall.
