In November 1970 Marc Karlin approached James Scott to join with him in making a film about women working at night on giant office blocks to make money to support their families. Forty five years later this film has been selected to be shown as part of All the World’s Futures, at the Biennale Arte 2015 09.05 – 22.11.2015 at Venezia Giardini – Arsenale. They were joined by Humphry Trevelyan and Mary Kelly and called themselves the Berwick Street Collective.
All the World’s Futures is a program curated by Okwui Enwezor, writer and editor, the first ever African to curate the Venice Biennale. His interest in language lies behind his selection of Nightcleaners for the Biennale.
