This Friday 21 June join us at 1PM at the Blast! venue ‘Former Poundland’, for a screening of Camera in the Streets, a documentary about Janine Wiedel’s work photographing West Midlands Industry. The film is followed by a discussion between Janine Wiedel and curator Craig Ashley.
.

Janine Wiedel’s work has covered issues of social concern since the late 60s, with a focus on groups struggling to survive on the edges of mainstream society. Wiedel was awarded the West Midlands Art Bursary 1978 and spent two years recording the region’s industries, including chain-making in Cradley Heath and Bilston’s steelworks. .
Showcasing work by Janine and John Myers, Black Country Living raises pertinent questions for the lives of people living in the Black Country. As a divided Britain contemplates a future outside the EU, how will the changes brought about by Brexit impact Sandwell, here at the heart of the nation? The exhibition is presented in public spaces throughout the Blast! Festival period until 29 June 2019. .
