London On and On

Over three loosely-thematic programmes, LONDON ON AND ON surveys recent film and video made by artists who either live or work in the English capital. Since the 1960s, when the formation of the Film-Makers’ Co-operative stimulated independent production, there has been an abundance of personal filmmaking in London, reflecting uniquely English characteristics and the cultural diversity of a capital city. This series, featuring works from the last decade, demonstrates how this rich history has developed into a thriving present. Though video has become the dominant medium, many artists now turn again toward film, perhaps invigorated by its proliferation in contemporary galleries and in reaction to rumours of an end to 16mm.
