Event description

Description

A screening of Camera in the Streets, a documentary about Janine Wiedel’s work photographing industries in the West Midlands, followed by a discussion between Janine Wiedel and curator, Craig Ashley, as part of the Black Country Living exhibition presented at the Blast! Festival.

Black Country Living revisits the work of two photographers renowned for their portrayals of the industrial landscape in the West Midlands during the 70s and 80s. Presented across the six towns of Sandwell, the photography of John Myers and Janine Wiedel reflects a rich social history at a time of significant change and upheaval. The exhibition raises pertinent questions for the lives of people living in the Black Country. As a divided Britain contemplates a future outside the EU, how will the changes brought about by Brexit impact Sandwell, here at the heart of the nation? Curated by Craig Ashley, the pictures will be presented in public spaces across Sandwell throughout the Blast! Festival period (24 May to 29 June, 2019).

£3 P/P - booking essential.
