Abstract

Watson visited the Kantor Archive (Cricoteka, Krakow) with Colin Greenslade to outline the exhibition project and secure support for transcription and translation of the video, along with input to the publication and premiere of the restored video. A further two visits by Watson were also funded by the Adam Mickeiwicz Institute (Warsaw). Watson led negotiations with John Leighton and Simon Groom (NGS) and Richard Demarco. With Greenslade he selected six artists who presented new performances. He led the design and production of the publication and the interpretive panels for the exhibition with input into texts and annotations, led by McArthur.
