"About
Politics surrounding the videocassette
Description
We are taking over the now empty Blockbuster Video Store in Catford, South East London to explore the politics surrounding the videocassette.


Using art installations, soundscapes, spoken word, discussions, talks, screenings, dance, games and more, the intervention questions the impact video has made on all our lives, how it affected our behaviour and the huge environmental cost of our short lived innovations.



We will be holding a 'Video Amnesty' allowing Lewisham residents to bring in old video cassettes[1] and players to be returned to the shelves for one last time before heading off to be completely recycled and re-emerge as something new
