John Akomfrah’s ground-breaking documentary The Stuart Hall Project (2013) combines archive footage and a soundtrack of the music of Miles Davis to portray the life of Stuart Hall, the founding figure of cultural studies who has had a resounding and ongoing influence on British intellectual and cultural life. The film meditates on memory, identity and the changing landscape of the late 20th century.
This event follows a symposium ‘Who do you think you are? Culture, Identity and the Contemporary Art Museum’.
