THIS IS NOW: FILM AND VIDEO AFTER PUNK – Just ImagesWed 04 May 2016 – Wed 04 May 2016 Bloc Projects (open Weds – Sat / 12pm – 6pm)
Featuring John Maybury, Vanda Carter, Isaac Julien, Cerith Wyn Evans & John Maybury. The moral, political and symbolic integrity of the image itself is interrogated and overturned in these richly textured films. John Maybury casts Siouxsie Sioux and fashion designer David Holah in one of the singularly most stunning and ambitious Super 8 works of the era, the existential genderfuck Court of Miracles. Young filmmakers bring on the post-modern age.
