Pirate Cinema Bombay

Pirate Cinema from Berlin, who we are working with on the video archive
http://pad.ma,  present a series of weekly (Sunday) events in the Pirate Cinema tradition, on films and footage.

"Not just a series of screenings, or a collection of pirated movies, but the
question of making visible, and then temporarily obsolete, a specific social
relation, mediated by copyrighted images, and a specific type of separation
or detachment, perfected by imaginary copyrights, that affects the art of
cinema, the space of cinema, and the discourse of cinema."

A Season of Footage and Films


CAMP presents
Saturday or Sunday evening screenings through winter, exploring footage both within and outside the usual capsule of "the film". An experience that could be similar to watching films, or at other times harder to digest, or slower to release, closer to the moment of shooting, less censorious, and less fearful of finitude. Another life, another world of viewing and listening experiences is always possible.

The Edgware Road Project


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. 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.

CAMP roof

Ashok and Azeer spent some time thinking about and building the CAMP terrace roof structure, built in late 2009. Some of the designs that were sketched out are further below: a big requirement was some retractability, i.e. the ability to have a shading roof in the day but to have it open/ partially open at night, for things like screenings under the stars.
