About

Keith Wilson presents a selection of films that have had a significant personal impact on himself, his work and ways of thinking.

Excerpts will be shown from Werner Herzog's Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972); Roberto Rossellini's The Flowers of St. Francis (1950) and the 1973 BBC Omnibus programme A Question of Feeling by Christopher Burstall.

One of the most radical episodes in art education A Question of Feeling documents the first days of The 'A' Course at St Martin's School of Art. Attempting to erase pre-existing notions of the art object; tutors Garth Evans, Peter Harvey, Gareth Jones and Peter Kardia paradoxically imprisoned their twelve students in the studio, in order to liberate them.

Shown along side A Question of Feeling, Aguirre: Wrath of God and The Flowers of St Francis focus the event's theme on unconventional practices, extremes of creativity, value systems and attempts at liberation.
