Centre for Possible Studies

Shaina, Ashok, Amal and Janna would like to invite you to spend an
evening with us, and view some materials from our recent research on
the commercial and cultural landscape of the Edgware Road. We have been
collecting a lot of stories and "evidence" around the deep changes
this street has seen in the past century, including at the Old English
Gentleman (for a century known as King's Head, now lebanese-owned, 132 edgware road)
and the Shishawy restaurant (formerly Gala Royal cinema, then Arabic
Centre, Arrimal nightclub, Hilal House and Miramar, 51-53 edgware
These fragments mark the beginning of a web-based and printing project by the Bombay-based artists group CAMP, as part of the Edgware Road Project: a Serpentine Gallery initiative in collaboration with Ashkal Alwan – The Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts, Beirut, and Townhouse Gallery, Cairo.
with many thanks to:
Edgware Road Association, Al Arez staff, Shishawy staff,
and the many people in the neighbourhood who have already been generous with their time and timelines.
CAMP is involved in a 2-year "print-from-web" project, linked to its own investigations of the infrastructures of commerce and pleasure in this part of London. As part of the first "block study", we looked at several buildings and their ownership and use histories, and produced a series of tablemats.
The web-based part of the project resides at http://edgwareroad.org. ( now at Print.with.camp ) This website collects materials from various such "studies", conducted by us and others, which then are collaboratively edited and published in a number of physical forms: volumes, pamphlets and placemats. This is an ongoing project, as part of the Serpentine Gallery's Public Program.
A projection of film clips known and unknown, footage seen and unseen, documents and photographs, and voices of filmmakers present and past.
