Photomonth events at Chats Palace
HACKNEY FLASHERS EXPOSED
40th anniversary of a Women’s Photographic Collective
Sunday 12th October, 2pm – 5pm
FREE AND OPEN TO ALL
The Hackney Flashers Collective was active as a feminist agitprop group in London from 1974 to 1980. The group produced two photographic/graphic exhibitions on large panels addressing complex ideas about women’s lives as workers and as mothers, inside and outside the home – Women and Work and Who’s Holding the Baby?
To mark the recent launch of the Hackney Flashers website, the group are calling a meeting of the generations: how did they work as a collective in the 1970s? How is the struggle for the most basic of women’s rights being carried on now, forty years later?
A rare chance to see some of the exhibition panels from the time too!
Exhibition ‘Photographer Unknown’
OCTOBER 12 – DECEMBER 21
Thursday – Sunday, 12pm – 5pm
A selection from the 40 year old Chats Palace archive portraying Homerton scenes and characters through the ad hoc documentation of a group of voluntary and often uncredited photographers. Portraits range from casual snaps to more formal studies and in passing offer a glimpse of the area, within our living memory.
