Derek Jarman, The Queen is Dead
Derek Jarman, The Queen is Dead

Avant-Gardening's Paul is this months guest curator of the video space at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes. The films selected for this programme were chosen as they represent parts of a complex cycle of heightened emotions and the societal and psychological factors which can contribute to an individual’s perception of self. The films range from the reflective through to a pop art visualisation of war and destruction and explore the complexity of a symbiotic interaction between the individual and society.
