Strategy Get Arts: In Conversation with the Artist Alexander Hamilton (60 mins)
Q & A after the film.
Strategy: Get Arts was held in the summer of 1970 at Edinburgh College of Art. This ground-breaking exhibition was curated by Richard Demarco and featured works by Joseph Beuys, and other canonical figures of post-1945 art such as Gerhard Richter, Blinky Palermo, Sigmar Polke and Günter Uecker.
The film features archive photographs by George Oliver of this important event and takes the form of an interview between the artist Alex Hamilton (an assistant during the exhibition) and Dr Christian Weikop, Senior Lecturer in Modern and Contemporary German Art at ECA.
