To Hell With Culture (2014) Film Screening, Manchester

As I’ve been exploring the links between Herbert Read, the organisers of Pictures for Schools and the influence of his ideas on educators and art education in the post-war period I’m very excited about going to see this next week (Federation House, Manchester, Thursday 1 May, 7pm, free). I also interviewed director Huw Wahl for my main blog, the Shrieking Violet, about the film, how and why he became interested in Herbert Read, and why he thinks we can still learn from Herbert Read’s ideas today.

'Art, it is said, is not a mirror, but a hammer: it does not reflect, it shapes.'
