I have continued to work on my Bethnal Green project Private View… with further visits to the V&A Museum of Childhood and York Hall. Both of these venues have interesting histories. The Museum was originally constructed to provide  a home for exhibits from the Great Exhibition in 1851. The “Brompton Boilers’ as it was affectionately known opened […]

I thought I would make a small iPhone video of the installation at Oxford House for my archive and to show those who can’t make it to Bethnal Green. I think it looks pretty good, but of course I a very biased. Certainly the most ambitious exhibition I’ve staged (so far). The video is on Vimeo […]

For the last two days I have been at Oxford House in Bethnal Green working with a group based there. The idea was to shoot some video footage of members of the group talking about their views on the social issues raised by Charles Booth’s survey – but in the modern context. The final version […]

The aim will be to commemorate the centenary of Charles Booth’s death. OH was originally a University Settlement along the lines of Toynbee Hall and was founded in the late 1800s. OH […]
