Another Decade (2018)
13 Minutes, Standard Definition Video and 16MM
Directed and edited by Morgan Quaintance, Another Decade combines archive and found footage from the 1990s, with recently shot 16mm film and standard definition video.
Focusing on testimonies and statements made by artists, theorists and cultural producers that are still pertinent over two decades later, the video’s production was propelled by a sense that very little socio-cultural or institutional change has taken place in the United Kingdom.
While recent attention paid to the ’90s casts a largely apolitical view over the decade, the work seeks to exhume evidence buried in the shallow grave of cultural amnesia, of another, more political, more iconoclastic, and more confrontational decade. A decade that promised a future still yet to arrive.
