This major new exhibition explores two radical 1970s arts collectives in London’s East End. Four Corners and Camerawork (formerly the Half Moon Photography Workshop) championed filmmaking and photography as tools for social engagement and change. Engaging with grassroots activism and underrepresented cultures, their work inspired a generation of practitioners.
Featuring photographs by Nick Hedges, Peter Kennard, Mike Goldwater, Paul Trevor, Jenny Matthews, Ed Barber, Jo Spence, Susan Meiselas; Peter Kennard photomontage; extracts from Four Corners’ films Nighthawks, Bred and Born and A Kind of English; with archive material on display for the first time.
The exhibition launches alongside Four Corners Archive.
