LONDON: THE MODERN BABYLON is a kaleidoscope of TV and film clips, photos, graffiti, paintings, poetry extracts, advertising images and album covers, and even some home movies contributed by the public. It is all assembled in layers, just as London has been endlessly layered over by new arrivals and new influences.
From 1890s hand-cranked black-and-white 35mm, to early 16mm home movies from the late ‘20s, Super-8mm in the ‘50s and ‘60s, VHS in the ‘80s, Mini DV in the '90s and today's HD, each format evokes the period in which it was used, dramatically foregrounding how the old, monochrome London has exploded into vivid multicultural colour.
Followed by a live Q&A with director Julien Temple
