Turner Contemporary video mystery

Looking at yesterdays post this morning I noticed that the video I embedded had vanished, this is a bit odd as presumably this video was made with the gallery’s grant funding, never got linked to the gallery’s website and as far as I could see the very few viewings it got came from when I first embedded it in this website some time ago.

Anyway there are now two new videos about the gallery’s recent activities, this firs one about the recent Margate walk

Hamish Fulton Margate walk - interviews from Hugh Kermode on Vimeo.

and a new one about their current exhibition.

Time of Our Lives from Hugh Kermode on Vimeo.


  1. I wonder were it went I have seen the second one before, but then I am the person who visits the Turner Contemporary website. I am pleased so many people did the walk thing I am slightly jealous of them being able to do it but I try not to do Jealousy, so perhaps envious is a better description.

    Linkie to Dr Paul Darke's "Outside Centre" disabled artist charity gallery example

    If Turner Centre would hold an Outside Centre exhibition coupled with Winter Gardens booking Dr Laurence Clark

    A Dr Laurence Clark Leeds University thesis mentioning yours truly

    We did away with the workhouse for the unemployed but the workhouse type institutional model remains for the disabled and elderly. If Art (such as Laurence's alternative comedy and Paul's art and film charity) challenges us to move on from the condecsending institutional models of the past then it may have some justification in poncing on public funds.

    I hope you take the linkie. Can you imagine that image on the side of the Pleasurama Cliff face ??


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
