Read Aesthetica Magazine’s review of LOOKING OUT FROM THE #CCCS:
‘From 1964 until 2002, a unique blend of teaching, student engagement and documentation that took place at Birmingham’s Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS). Founded at the University of Birmingham by sociologist Richard Hoggart in 1964, it was one of the first academic bodies to examine the impact of popular culture, particularly in Britain, from music and television programmes to fashion trends. In 2002 the CCCS was dramatically closed due to a restructuring at the university with hundreds of students being placed into new departments. Now, in 2014, the 50th anniversary of its establishment, a series of events and exhibitions, of which one is Vivid Project’s Looking Out From The CCCS, celebrate its legacy. - See more at: http://www.aestheticamagazine.com/blog/review-looking-cccs-vivid-projects-birmingham/#sthash.SE0xMUAP.dpuf
