The Problem of Perspective: Sheffield, 27 February 2017

Organised by Pavilion, The Problem of Perspective is a series of screenings illuminating a distinctly northern perspective on the history of artists’ moving image in England.

This edition of the project, co-programmed by researcher and media archivist Alex Wilson, focuses exclusively on Sheffield. Featuring: films and videos by Nick Cope, Sven Harding, Ivor Tymchak, Jackie Jones, Simon Rolph, Peter Care and George Shaw, made at Sheffield City Polytechnic in the 1980s at a time of ardent aesthetic experimentation and socio-political uncertainty; resolutely feminist filmmaking from the Sheffield Film Co-op; a study of working class life in Sheffield in the 1960s by documentarian Peter Nestler; and work by Tim Etchells, leader of the performance group Forced Entertainment.
