This major new exhibition reveals the little-known story of two radical film and photography collectives in London’s East End.

Part of a broader culture of oppositional politics in 1970s Britain, 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.

Radical Visions delves into this critical contribution to British cultural history. Featuring original archive material, the exhibition brings together photographs by Daniel Meadows, Nick Hedges, Peter Kennard, Mike Goldwater, Paul Trevor, Jenny Matthews, Ed Barber, Jo Spence, Susan Meiselas and many others, alongside extracts from Four Corners’ films NighthawksBred and Born and A Kind of English, with posters, prints and magazines on display for the first time.

The exhibition coincides with the launch of Four Corners Archive. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this unique public resource opens up the work of Four Corners, Camerawork magazine and the Half Moon Photography Workshop for new audiences.

A programme of talks, workshops and seminars runs alongside the exhibition.
