Look at life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Look at Life was a regular series of short documentary films produced in the 1960s by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation and screened in their Odeon and Gaumont cinemas - replacing the circuit's newsreel, Universal News, which had become largely irrelevant with the advent of television news broadcasts. Marvellously concise and beautifully shot, these 'slice of life' colour featurettes - numbering over 500 episodes in total - presented cinemagoers with varied aspects of contemporary life in Britain and beyond. Transferred from the original film elements, this set presents 72 memorable films whose subjects range from the newly independent countries of Africa to life behind the Iron Curtain, from the Common Market to new industries in Ireland; offering a window on the world in a period of rapid change, many of these films have remained unseen since their first screening
Semiotics of the kitchen by Martha Rosler( Visual )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this art parody of a cooking demonstration, "an anti-Julia Child" replaces the domesticated meaning of tools with a lexicon of rage and frustration
Vital statistics of a citizen, simply obtained a tape by Martha Rosler( Visual )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

First presented as a live performance, the narrative is told in one long continuous shot of a male examiner and his assistant measuring a female subject inch by inch. A trio of women wearing white lab coats watch and ring bells or blow whistles when standard measurements are met. A voiceover comments about dehumanization, the structuring of self-perception and the internalization of society's standards as the systematic evaluation continues until the subject has removed all of her clothes. The final segment is a series of black and white photos of women and children being measured while a voice states a litany of crimes against women. Reminiscent of images from concentration camps and oppressive political regimes or armed forces, this is an example of one of Rosler's more pointed feminist pieces
New Bunhill Fields burial ground, Southwark : excavations at Globe Academy, 2008 by Adrian Miles( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary sources suggest that from c 1821-53 up to 33,000 burials may have taken place in the commercial Nonconformist burial ground at New Bunhill Fields, Southwark. Excavation of 827 wooden coffin burials in 2008 allows comparisons of the use of the burial ground, coffin furniture and burial finds with other contemporary cemeteries. Of particular interest is the good level of preservation of floral remains in a childs coffin, ceramic plates in a womans coffin and good examples of burial clothing. The 514 skeletons selected for full osteological analysis, demonstrating a broad spectrum of disease conditions, provide a wealth of information about life and death in this area of 19th-century London
