Scottish writer and filmmaker Timothy Neat has collaborated with Berger since 1978. As a ‘trailer’ to Neat’s Retrospective Exhibition, ‘STANDS SCOTLAND WHERE SHE DID?’ (Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen, 28 September – 9 November 2013), Summerhall is proud to exhibit photographs, drawings and archive material documenting Berger’s seminal contribution to the culture of Scotland. The Neat/Berger film ‘Play Me Something’ (Tilda Swinton, Hamish Henderson, Liz Lochhead) will be shown. Public seminars, led by Timothy Neat and Anne Michaels (with an outstanding array of platform of speakers) will explore Berger’s contribution to c.20th art, politics, literature and philosophy.
