Reading the Archive
15 November, 2019, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Explore the heritage of telecoms alongside specially-created films and displays by Central St Martin’s design students. Visit BT Archives – housed in a 1927 telephone exchange building in central London.
Graphic Communication Design students have responded to the heritage collections and created works inspired by their reading of the documents, photographs, art and objects. Alongside the students’ displays, the heritage team will bring out their favourite original material to be viewed side-by-side with the students’ work.
You will also have the chance to see short films from the archive collections, interspersed with the students’ film creations. These viewings include everything from a 1930s Heavenly Post Office film describing the different types of telegram, to a 1990s adverts where Bob Hoskins explains that ‘it’s good to talk’.
