Art in Bath.

Art The BBC Archive pages have been updated with this silent footage of the Bath Academy of Art.



The material covers all the areas you might expect to see in an art school and is bathed (sorry) in the aesthetic of the 1960s.  One of my great regrets is that I wasn't brave enough to apply for art school from university, held back slightly by my inability to draw.

The unrestored nature of the footage which looks like its been shot via telecine creates an extra level of atmosphere. If you're looking for a soundtrack and want to go for the Adam Curtis approach, can I recommend some Brian Eno? The Pearl perhaps?
