This much is certain

A timely month-long event at the Royal College of Art about the significance of the document and the documentary in contemporary life and art.

The art exhibition, film programme, talks and online material deal with media control versus narrative construction and our inability to establish how much is certain any more. The rich line-up of films ranges from works by Peter Watkins, Mike Leigh and Nick Broomfield to Trinh T Minh-ha, Lenka Clayton and the Bureau of Inverse Technology, and includes Paul Bush’s under-acknowledged 25-minute ‘found-footage’ masterpiece The Rumour of True Things.

This Much Is Certain runs until 4 April 2004.
