In 2010 The Hepworth Wakefield, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Film and Video Umbrella were awarded the Contemporary Art Society Annual Award for Museums: commission to collect. Thanks to this generous investment a new film by Turner prize nominee Luke Fowler has been commissioned and will be co-acquired for the permanent collections of both institutions.
Luke’s film focuses on the life and work of the socialist historian EP Thompson and his involvement with the Workers Education Association. Presented in a documentary style format, combining archive and contemporary footage, the film questions our notions about how history is constructed.
