Afterall Film Club: Mark Leckey

03 oct 2012
Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London, London.

We are pleased to announce the third meeting of the Afterall Film Club on Wednesday 3 October 2012. Mark Leckey will introduce a film of his choice, which will be discussed following its full screening.

Mark Leckey rose to prominence with Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999) a collage of found and original footage of UK music scenes and subcultures from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s such as Northern Soul, rave, and casuals. He once described it as being about ‘how images from the past have an effect on you, and can give you this really sickening sense of nostalgia’. More recently, his performative lecture Mark Leckey in the Long Tail (2009) used props and examples including Felix the Cat and the BBC to visualise the ‘long tail’ theory of internet-based economics. He lives and works in London.

Afterall Film Club is free and takes place three times a term at Central Saint Martins new building. The first meetings of the club were chaired by Laura Mulvey and Dexter Dalwood. The next scheduled meeting is on Thursday 25 October with John Stezaker.
