‘not for gain’
Screening of Daisy Lafarge’s new film, made for Degree Show 2016 at Edinburgh College of Art. The screening will serve as a precursor to her commissioned text for MAP (to be published summer 2016) in which she proposes to undertake an archaeological approach to the MAP archive.

‘It is this it is this, it is this’
A performative video-essay presented by Laura Edbrook and Sarah Forrest on the manner of ‘distance from’ and ‘closeness to’ in the work and biography of Scottish poet and filmmaker, Margaret Tait.

‘The bits of ourselves we leave behind’
Sarah Neely presents a series of fragments from Margaret Tait’s film archive, exploring the late filmmaker’s practice. The presentation will provide a context for ‘It is this it is this, it is this’, exploring Neely’s research in relation to Tait’s archive.

‘Scoring the Archive’
Debi Banerjee and Kirsty Hendry invite you to a reading workshop based on research into Section V, an experimental programme ran by Ted Odling at The Glasgow School of Art from 1965 – mid 1970s. Participants will explore collectively the role of the ‘anecdotal archive’ by voicing and making public the notebooks, letters, diaries, and personal accounts absent from the bureaucratic record.
