Title: This Day Remains
subtitle: From 1982 until 1998 the Black Audio Film Collective’s essays, films and ‘slide-tape texts’ opened up a new aesthetic and discursive space within the worlds of British art, experimental film, television and critical theory. A new exhibition celebrates their achievements
Author: The Otolith Group

Article contains 3 pages of images one of which is a full page photograph with the caption: ‘Black Audio Film Collective, Ridley Road, Dalston, East London 1989.’ On page 144 is the highlighted text: “Chris Marker once tried, and failed to find the BAFC office, which was near a market in East London. We like to imagine him asking stallholders for Black Audio, only to be steered towards rows of jungle techno CDs.”
On page 146 is the highlighted text: “Black Audio Film Collective did not “interrogate“ the image, nor did they ever really “question“ it; they were not image police. They were more like midwives handling an archival fragment as tenderly as if it were a premature infant.”
