The Ambiguities of Activism and the Limits of Production

(p.1) 1 Nightcleaners
Art Labor, Sex Politics

Siona Wilson

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter One establishes the political and aesthetic setting for the book through a reading of Nightcleaners (1972-5)--an experimental documentary by the Berwick Street Film Collective--and its controversial reception. A newly radicalized film culture after May ’68 and a highly charged feminist activist campaign generate a remarkable visual document.
