People who have saved this event:


Tracey Emin is the ௿½bad girl௿½ of British art. She uses her emotional life as the source and subject matter of much of her art.


Beginning with views of Margate where she grew up, the film she talks about her teenage years bored in the seaside town - the school she attended, the sea front, shopping arcades and a dramatic clock tower.

It covers her experimentation with sex until she became disillusioned with men and turned instead to dancing.

The story climaxes with her attempt to win the finals of the local disco-dancing competition and escape to London to compete for the British Disco Dance Championship 1978.

Parental Warning: This video contains (mild) sexual references.
