Burden of Representation, The (2 Parts)

Synopsis
These programmes examine the work of a number of black artists, photographers and film-makers, and consider how the fact that someone is black (or female) can place a demand on them to somehow to ‘represent’ their fellow black human beings. They attempt to go beyond the debate about ‘negative’ and ‘positive’ images. The artists speak for themselves with very little interpretation of the underlying ideological arguments from outside.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
