Harold Offeh presents a talk on his practice in the Serpentine Galleries Education Space.
From January – March 2016, Harold Offeh worked with a group of twelve Year 10 students from Westminster Academy on the Serpentine Galleries Youth Forum. The young people worked with Harold to collectively write, record and produce a television programme entitled ‘Everything is T.V: Who has the Power?’. The short programme is based on discussions the young people had about school, the education system and society. In July 2016 the programme was screened at Westminster Academy to an audience of students and newly qualified teachers and used as a tool to generate discussion about how to collaboratively bring about change in school.
Harold Offeh is an artist and curator working in a range of media including performance, video, photography, learning and social practice. Often employing humour as a means to confront the viewer with an assessment of contemporary culture, Offeh’s current project ‘Covers’ sees the artist embody images from popular culture in a series of attempts to transform music album covers from the 1970s and 80s by black divas. He continues to work in a number of diverse and situational contexts.
