England’s Itch

A brief update on The Future of Landscape and the Moving Image: as of July, Patrick Keiller’s film Robinson in Ruins and Doreen Massey’s ‘Landscape/space/politics: an essay’ (which references my interview with Keiller) are complete, and Patrick Wright is completing a monograph provisionally entitled England’s Itch, a critique of past and present ideas of deep settlement and their engagement with landscape. A DVD edition was released through the BFI on 20 June 2011, with an accompanying booklet including an abridgement of Professor Massey’s essay, and the entire essay is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
