Things We Like

Nightcleaners: A Screening & Discussion


On 20th March, Radar will be screening Nightcleaners (1975) - a landmark work of experimental political film recently named one of the BFI’s ‘10 great films about England’s radical history’. Following the film, there’ll be an audience discussion with invited respondents: a Loughborough University cleaner; Marlous van Boldrik, who is studying for a PhD in artists’ uses and representations of cleaning; and Miffy Ryan, an artist who has both worked as a cleaner and used cleaning in her arts practice. 

This event is FREE and open to all.

Artist in Residence: Ian Nesbitt

Ian Nesbit artist in residence.jpg

Our artist in residence, Ian Nesbitt has been exploring the geographies of care on campus and within the wider community. He will be creating a series of films, with students, whilst walking around the boundary of the University campus. This film will then be screened in Loughborough this year. Ian describes himself as a social artist, which means that his work often takes the form of engaging in social situations through collaboration with individuals, communities, organisations and institutions. An interest in social change and social justice runs through his work, which is why he feels that working with the Action group of students is a good fit.
