Serpentine Gallery, London
Pleasure: A Block Study, a publication that comes out of their
multi-year residency with the Edgware Road Project. Produced entirely
online, via the print tool and website
edgwareroad.org, this volume was initiated by the
artists, focussing on a very small piece of the city: a few buildings
on the Edgware Road in London.
The publication explores a history of 'public pleasures' that arose in the Edgware Road neighbourhood, starting from the 19th
Century to the present, documenting social shifts on the street
and the surrounding areas. Arab, Iranian, Irish, Kurdish and other
businesses and groups produced a particular history of film, video,
music and street life that often clashed with existing legal and
proprietary structures. A tumultuous few decades of these
struggles form the heart of this book, offering on the one hand, images
and narratives of a pleasure filled Dionysian street-life, and on the
other tales of bureaucratic containment that limit and regulate various
emergences of public life.
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.
