Import USA Hardback edition book.
This enthralling book is the first to assess the oeuvre of Black Audio Film Collective, (BAFC) one of Britain s most influential artistic groups. It reconsiders the entire corpus of the seven person London-based group from their inception in 1982 to their conclusion in 1998. The Ghosts of Songs aims to do critical justice to the full sweep of the group's innovative practice from films, videos and installations to essays, manifestos and statements. Fully illustrated throughout (with many previously unseen images and stills) The Ghosts of Songs reveals the incredibly stylish and innovative work of the BAFC and its impact on cinema, music, fashion and culture.
