Stills’ Social Documents programme continues with Allan Sekula’s rich photographic and filmic mappings of modern life.

As a prelude to a new exhibition of Sekula’s photography, Stills presents a retrospective of his moving image works. Spanning over three decades of his practice, the films are both projected at set times and available to view on individual monitors. To download full programme details please click here.
